Support among Australians for keeping the country's troops in Iraq for as long as they are needed has slipped, an opinion poll showed Tuesday. Some 31 percent of respondents during a weekend survey conducted by Newspoll said they supported the center-right government's policy that Australian troops should remain in Iraq for as long as they are needed - down from 45 percent in December 2004. The same poll also showed support for the opposition Labor Party's policy of immediate troop withdrawal had also slipped but to a lesser extent. The weekend survey found 27 percent of respondents support an immediate withdrawal, down from 33 percent in December 2004.
