A new national poll indicates that support among Americans for the war in Afghanistan has hit a new low.
Forty-one percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released Thursday say they favor the war in Afghanistan — down 9 points from May, when CNN polling suggested that half of the public supported the war.
Fifty-four percent say they oppose the war in Afghanistan, up 6 points from May.
“Afghanistan is almost certainly the Obama policy that Republicans like the most,” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said. “Nearly two-thirds of Republicans support the war in Afghanistan. Three-quarters of Democrats oppose the war.”
