More than half of adults in five Southern Atlantic states say the United States should no longer be in Iraq.

A poll released Friday by Elon University shows that 52 percent no longer support a military presence in Iraq. The same percentage of respondents also say they feel the war in Iraq was not worth fighting, compared with 40 percent who say it was worth it.

The survey involved 1,374 adults from households in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. It was conducted over the past two weeks and has a sampling error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.

The survey also found that 42 percent of adults say the war in Iraq has made the nation less safe, while more than 38 percent think the war has made the nation safer from terrorism.
