A US poll suggests most people want President Barack Obama to pull troops out of Afghanistan faster than he’s doing, and many are sceptical about a tentative nuclear deal with Iran.
In the Associated Press-GfK poll, 57 per cent now say that going to war in Afghanistan after the 2001 attacks was probably the “wrong thing to do”.
Fifty-three per cent say the pace of the planned withdrawal is too slow, 34 per cent say the pace is just about right and 10 per cent say it is too fast.
All combat troops are scheduled to leave by the end of 2014.
Meanwhile, 59 per cent approve of the preliminary deal between Iran and six global powers to curb Iran’s nuclear ambitions, but that support is soft and many doubt the preliminary deal will lead to concrete results.
Even though he garners more disapproval than approval on the handling of Afghanistan and Iran, Obama generally gets better ratings on foreign policy than on domestic issues.
Nearly half (49 per cent) approve of his handling of US relations with other countries, while 50 per cent disapprove.
In contrast, just 40 per cent approve of his handling of the economy, while 59 per cent disapprove.
And on health care, the approval rating stands at 39 per cent, with 61 per cent disapproving.
His overall job approval is at 42 per cent, with 58 per cent disapproving.
The poll of 1367 adults was conducted December 5-9 using KnowledgePanel, GfK’s probability-based online panel, with the margin of sampling error plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
