AF-PAK WAR VIEW DEPENDS ON AGE, GENDER

Progressive Review - According to a new Harris poll there is a major gender and age gap on the issue of Afghanistan. In fact, only 13% of women (as opposed to 37% of men) want us to commit more troops there. And while 44% of those over 55 want more troops, only 23% of those under 35 agree. Added together, less than 50% of Americans want more troops or the same level we have now.

Here are the percentages by groups of those who want more troops or the same level as now:
  • 57% male
  • 33% female
  • 42% 18-34 year olds
  • 51% 35-44 year olds
  • 61% 45-54 year olds
  • 65% 55 and older
