What's in the Polls?

Here is an interesting resource for polls on public opinion for the war against insurgents in Afghanistan:

Thanks - I think this is pretty great, for a free resource! I feel like there must be a lot more polls than those listed here, though.

Wow. I knew that this administration was trying to mold 9-11/terrorism together with Iraq, but I didn’t actually think it would work. Furthermore, I didn’t think the American public would buy into that crap that they were related, but judging from what I see in these polls, they’re starting to view Afghanistan like Iraq. It’s a shame too because they should fully be backing the war in Afghanistan. Afghanistan and Iraq were two separate wars that really didn’t have anything to do with the other when they began. Now they do, somewhat, but that was a creation that we made by going into Iraq and trying to mesh the two together under the word – terrorism. Was that the right thing to do? Only time will tell. Believe it or not, there are actually some good things that are working in our favor due to that meshing of the two. This report shows how even the insurgents/resistance movement in Iraq are starting to view the terrorists organization differently.
This story is good news to hear coming out of Iraq. Now all we need to do is get this type of thinking to take place along the Afghan/Pakistan boarder. The more people in these areas who start to blame Al-Qaeda for their troubles and split with them, the stronger the Iraqi and Afghan government will grow.
