Support for Afghan war hits all-time low
From CNN's Mark Preston

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The American public is evenly divided over the U.S. war in Afghanistan, a major change from October 2001 when 9 out of 10 Americans supported invading the country, a new CNN poll shows.

The CNN poll, conducted by Opinion Research Corporation, comes as Afghan President Hamid Karzai is meeting with President Bush this morning and Congressional leaders this afternoon. The polls shows that 50 percent of Americans favor the U.S. war in Afghanistan, while 48 percent oppose it. CNN Polling Director Keating Holland notes that this is a "historic low" for public support of the Afghan war.
