Some very interesting results about voter attitudes to the war in Afghanistan from last night’s ComRes poll for the Independent. It comes ahead of tomorrow’s prime ministerial TV debate on Foreign Policy.
Highlights of the poll:
- 70 per cent of voters feel they aren’t being offered any real choice on policies with regard to Afghanistan.
- Half don’t understand why Britain is still there
- Almost three quarters (72 per cent) believe the war is unwinnable.
- A third disagree that that the war will have little influence on the way they vote – including a higher proportion of young voters.
