"CNN Poll: Just 25% Of Americans Support The War In Afghanistan"

Recent polls have found that support for the war in Afghanistan is plummeting and results from a new CNN/ORC International poll out today continue the trend. The poll shows that Americans’ support for the war is at an all-time low with only 25 percent saying they favor the war, down 17 percentage points from when the same poll asked the question in May, 2011. Fifty-five percent said the U.S. should withdraw all troops before the 2014 pull-out deadline and for the first time since the war began, a majority of Republicans surveyed oppose the war in Afghanistan.
