National Survey of 1,000 Likely Voters
Conducted May 29-30, 2014
By Rasmussen Reports
1* How closely have you followed recent news reports about Afghanistan?
2* Is Afghanistan a vital national security interest for the United States these days?
3* Overall, how would you rate the Obama administration’s handling of the situation in Afghanistan?
4* Current plans call for having only 9,800 U.S. troops in Afghanistan by the end of this year and fully withdrawing all troops by the end of 2016. Should some U.S. troops remain in Afghanistan through 2016 or should the United States withdraw all troops from the country by the end of this year?
5* Suppose we had not fought the war in Afghanistan. Would life in America be safer today or more dangerous? Or has the war had no impact on the safety of most Americans?
