    Sorry, I have no poll numbers on public sentiment regarding the drone strikes.  

    You may well be correct that a greater portion of the public favors the drone strikes than opposes it.  However, such polls do not contradict my statement that "Large numbers of Americans oppose the drone killings".

    And keep in mind that the American invasion of Iraq at one time enjoyed widespread popularity and favorability.  Nonetheless, it became an Archilles Heel for the Bush admin.
