Support for war in Afghanistan at new low

Posted: Updated:

A new poll indicates that the war in Afghanistan could be the most unpopular war in history, even more than the Vietnam War. The CNN/ORC International Survey found that among Americans, support for the war in Afghanistan has dipped below 20%. Just 17% of those questioned say that they support the 12-year-long war.

About 2,300 U.S. troops have been killed in Afghanistan since the war began in 2001. The U.S. is scheduled to remove all combat troops by December 2014, but that could happen sooner if a new security agreement is not signed.
