Poll: More say US defense isn’t strong enough, but most are content
By: Joe Gould 
 

WASHINGTON ― As progressives work to cut President Joe Biden’s flat defense budget request for 2022 ― and Republicans, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., push to increase it ― public views are not expected to provide much momentum to either side.

Biden’s pullout from the 20-year-old war in Afghanistan isn’t seen as an animating issue either, according to a Gallup poll released Friday.

Though 35 percent of people surveyed said U.S. national defense isn’t strong enough (up from 25 percent a year ago), 50 percent said the country’s defense is “just right,” according to the poll. By contrast, 14 percent said America’s national defense is stronger than it needs to be.

Give a Democrat a fish and he'll eat for a day.  Teach a Democrat to fish and he'll steal your rod, take your wallet, sexually assault the fish, and then blame President Trump.
