Report: Americans More Positive Regarding U.S. Progress in Afghanistan

U.S. Department of Defense (PRINCETON, N.J.) -- According to recent USA Today/Gallup poll results, Americans are increasingly optimistic about U.S. progress in Afghanistan. 

Although 54 percent of Americans polled say the U.S. is not doing well in Afghanistan, 45 percent -- the highest percentage since July 2009 -- believe the U.S. is advancing rather well.

As for an assessment of President Obama's handling of the war in Afghanistan, Americans appear to be divided almost evenly.  Forty-four percent approve of the president's direction, while 49 percent believe Obama could be managing the situation better.

Overall, those surveyed are more supportive of the Afghanistan war than the war in Iraq.
