POLL: Half Of Americans Think Afghan War Not A Success

A new poll from CBS News shows deep dissatisfaction among Americans with the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan. Fully half of respondents said they didn’t think the war was a success, and 62 percent think U.S. troop numbers there should be decreased (down slightly from June). More than half of both Democrats and independents thought the war effort had been unsuccessful, while 41 percent of Republicans held that view. Almost seven in 10 Americans said the war has gone on longer than they expected.
