PORTLAND - A new KATU News poll taken Tuesday has found that 30-percent of adults in Portland say that President Bush's $75 billion price tag for the war is too high a price for deposing Saddam Hussein.

The poll found that 62-percent of Portland adults said removing Saddam was worth the cost.

Nearly half of the people surveyed, 44-percent, said they thought the war in Iraq would last months; 24-percent said they thought the conflict would last weeks; 19-percent said it would last up to a year, and 9-percent said it would last longer than one year.

Sixty-seven percent polled said they think the US military is appropriately concerned with civilian casualties; 20-percent said the military is overly concerned with civilian casualties, and 11-percent said the military is not concerned enough. Two percent said they were not sure.

When asked which side was winning the war, 67-percent said the US and its allies were winning; one-percent said Iraq was winning; 30-percent said neither side was winning; and two-percent said they were not sure.

The poll, conducted for KATU News by SurveyUSA, surveyed 500 adults in the Portland area via telephone, the poll has a margin of error of 4.4 percent.
