The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan didn't play a major role in the midterm elections that devastated Democrats, but Americans think that the best way for President Obama to come back would be to make good on his promise to withdraw troops.
The new Washington Whispers poll found that 40 percent believe that bringing the troops home would help Obama recover from his political "shellacking." Another 35 percent said that he should include Republican ideas in his upcoming State of the Union Address which the White House is just beginning to work on.
Our poll had good news for Vice President Joe Biden, who has been in the middle of rumors that the president might swap him for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Just 1 percent said that the key to an Obama comeback is replacing Biden.
Now that he's taken an admitted "shellacking" from voters, what would be the best thing for President Obama to do to recover?
Withdraw troops from Iraq and Afghanistan 40%
Put Republican ideas in his State of the Union address 35%
Fight the GOP 14%
Take a long vacation 10%
Pick a new vice president 1%
