Do You Support the War in Afghanistan?

Support is at an all-time low for the war in Afghanistan, according to a new CNN-Opinion Research Corporation poll that came out this morning. Only 39% of Americans approve of the war now, compared with 53% who supported it in April.

We always like to poll the Heidi show viewers directly - so we want to know: do you support the war in Afghanistan right now? Why or why not? Has your opinion changed over the course of the last year?

Post your comments here.
