Hucks Poll: Bring Troops Home Now

  • Tuesday Poll: A plurality of Hucks Nation voted that President Obama should bring all American troops home from Afghanistan now. 54 of 117 respondents (46.15) want our troops home immediately. However, 38 of 117 respondents (32.48%) favors a slow withdrawal that ends in 2014. Also, 19 respondents (16.24%) wants Obama to remove the 30,000 surge troops now; 5 (4.27%) support an indefinite presence in Afghanistan; and only 1 (.85%) backs the choice that Obama likely will follow -- withdrawal of 10,000 troops immediately and gradual withdrawal afterward.
  • Today's Poll: What kind of message did legislators send by awarding $94,633 in bonuses this year to legislative staffers?
