An overwhelming majority of Americans oppose the U.S. giving aid to the Taliban-controlled government in Afghanistan, a Trafalgar Group survey released Wednesday found.
The survey asked, “Do you support the United States giving foreign aid to the new Taliban government of Afghanistan?”
A scant 5.9 percent indicted support for doing so, while 77.4 percent expressed opposition. Of those, 60 percent said they “strongly” oppose the U.S. giving foreign aid to the Taliban-controlled government in Afghanistan.
The sentiments are consistent across the board. Among Democrats, specifically, 64.5 percent oppose doing so, compared to 8.5. percent who support it. Notably, over a quarter of Democrats expressed no opinion on the matter.
An overwhelming 90.7 percent of Republicans oppose giving foreign aid to the Taliban-run government
