A majority of Republicans and 66 percent of Americans now say the war in Afghanistan hasn’t been worth fighting according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. The poll results showing a dramatic drop in the U.S. public’s support for the over a decade long war in Afghanistan may pose a challenge to Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney, who has frequently criticized President Obama’s war strategy and said the goal in Afhganistan should be to defeat the Taliban on the battlefield. The poll showed that U.S. support for the war is at an all-time low with only 30 percent of respondents saying it has been worth fighting.
