In December 2014, did the majority of people living in Afghanistan prefer the current government or the Taliban government that previously ruled the nation?
A scientific, nationwide survey in December 2014 found that the people of Afghanistan preferred the current government over the Taliban by a margin of 92% to 4%. The same month this poll was conducted, Obama officially ended U.S. combat operations in Afghanistan. Since that time, "the Islamic State has steadily made inroads," according to yesterday's Washington Post. Per the same article, the Islamic State has been so brutal and cruel that some people "long for the Taliban."
