More than 80 percent of Americans say they are opposed to the war in Afghanistan, making the longest war in US history also the most unpopular one, according to a new national poll.

The CNN/ORC International survey released Monday indicates that support for the war in Afghanistan among Americans has dipped to just 17 percent. In December 2008, 52 percent of those surveyed said they supported the war.
