Afghan Poll Shows Mixed Results in US Efforts in Afghanistan

A new poll recently conducted by major news services (The Washington Post, ABC News, BBC, and ARD) has mixed results. 
"More Afghans are pessimistic about the direction, less confident in the ability of the United States and its allies to provide security and more willing to negotiate with the Taliban than they were a year ago, according to a new poll conducted in all of Afghanistan's 34 provinces."
Surprisingly the poll results are positive in Kandahar and Helmand province where most of the coalition efforts are focused and most of the heavy fighting is occurring.  Read more in "Afghan poll shows falling confidence in U.S. efforts to secure country", The Washington Post, December 6, 2010.
