Afghan Public Opinion and the Afghan War

Shifts by Region and Province

ABC News, in cooperation with other news organizations like the BBC, ARD, and USA Today has run a long series of polls in Afghanistan. Most of this polling data has been published in forms that focus on nationwide opinion, rather than the difference by region and province. This new report from the Burke Chair shows the key trends and results of these polls and provides considerable insight into how Afghan opinion has changed over time and the growing impact of the war.
