For the first time, a majority of Republicans are now against the Afghans war. This puts Mitt Romney in a difficult position, since he has declared he will keep troops there indefinitely.
A majority of Republicans say for the first time that the war in Afghanistan has not been worth fighting, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll that comes as the continuing U.S. presence in that country is emerging as a key point of contention in the presidential race.
The poll findings are likely to present a challenge for Republican front-runner Mitt Romney, who has said that the goal in Afghanistan should be to defeat the Taliban on the battlefield.
Mitt Romney should heed this poll. The Pharaoh could use this issue against Romney. Americans are tired of our soldiers dying for a tribal savage society. Our troops deserve better.
