A poll released Wednesday found that 57 percent of Republicans support President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northern Syria.

An Economist/YouGov survey shows 25 percent of Republican respondents said they strongly approve of pulling out troops, while 32 percent stated they somewhat approve of the move. Further, 26 percent of Republicans surveyed said they oppose the move and 18 percent said they do not hold an opinion on the matter. The poll surveyed 1,500 people between October 13th-15th and had a margin of error of plus or minus of 2.7 percentage points.

The world is about to witness a NATO nation being shown the exit door.

More proof of what the Republican base has known all along, that the majority of Republicans in Congress do not give a fuck what the republican base thinks.

It is time to primary out the grifters and liars like Grahmnesty so they can pal around with the sneaky fucktartd Paul Ryan.

I most assuredly back him!

No more nation building and dipping around in Muslim messes that never end.

That would be great for us as well as for Europe. Unfortunately, I don’t think it likely. We should definitely get the forwardly deployed nukes out now however.

Imagine Graham today saying he would be Trumps worst nightmare.

Somebody needs to ask Sen Graham ......"What is the Objective in Syria?" "How is winning defined?" "What is our exit strategy?"

Graham needs to let us know what was the outcome of his investigation in the Supreme Court hearing debacle. Remember that? He promised us he would get to the bottom of that if it was the last thing he would do. This guy is a phony and the people of SC need to elect a real Republican in 2020.

Yes! And I am one of them. God Bless that man! I loved it when the President got all over Lindsay Graham’s case about our departing Syria. I was a Marine and a retired cop and I am very proud of what the President is doing. Screw the establishment!

Looks to me like PDJT is hitting the Turks with the same thing he used on the Norks and the Mexicans, plus a big dose of tariffs. The Turks thought they could get away with this crap with our other presidents, but not this one.

PDJT looks to be the first President since Renaldus Magnus genuinely to respect the lives of our troops. I served in the Army on active duty in 1968 and 1969. One of my responsibilities was to function as a Survivors’ Assistance Officer where I’d go the survivors of a soldier within 24 hours of when they were informed of his death and help them through the whole process, including attending the decedent’s funeral. It was hell on the survivors and damn wrenching for me. PDJT clearly understands this on the direct, personal level far better than most of his predecessors, and the politicians who’re attacking him, and is determined to prevent as many of these tragedies as possible while still protecting our national security.

So far he’s been hugely creative and successful beyond belief. We must all stand back, have some well deserved confidence in him, and let him do it with Syria, Turkey, and the Kurds.

I love when the Demtards and lamestream opine that President Trump’s withdrawal of troops from Syria is “undoing” all that has been done for lo these many years they’ve been steering the clown car. If what they laid the groundwork for isn’t working by now, wouldn’t it be considered sheer insanity to keep on doing the same thing and expecting good results (to paraphrase using an old axiom).

Considering the unanimous false portrayal of events by the media this is darn impressive!

I think congress only cares about what lobbyists want.

Great ploy by President Trump to withdraw troops from Middle East conflicts (whether from festering or quiet salients). Get our blood and treasure, our young military heroes, out of this mess and quit sacrificing their lives and health. If the Dems want war, let them go to the American families and plead for them to allow their sons and daughters to keep participating in the madness that’s been created by our lust for oil and wealth in this region.

A poll released Wednesday found that 57 percent of Republicans support President Donald Trump’s decision... shows 25 percent of Republican respondents said they strongly approve of pulling out troops, while 32 percent stated they somewhat approve of the move...and 18 percent said they do not hold an opinion on the matter.
...and that 18 percent don't care, they're going to vote for President Trump's reelection, IMHO.
26 percent of Republicans surveyed said they oppose the move... and had a margin of error of plus or minus of 2.7 percentage points.
They're no so much Republicans as NeverTrumpers and RINOs, IOW, politically, President Trump shored up his base of support, and couldn't care less about votes he hasn't rec'd in the past and will not receive in the future.

I just saw an interview with Cong. Crenshaw (R Texas) in which he spoke passionately about the President being wrong in pulling out the 50 soldiers blocking a Turkish invasion. He said the controlling question was whether Turkey would be willing to go to war with us over this issue.

To my way of thinking, the more important question is whether we are willing to go to war with Turkey over this issue. My answer to that question is a resounding no. We are talking about a major war, not a fist fight on a playground.

Yup. Let’s reinstate the draft with all democrat kids and send them to Syria and the Middle East, starting with Pelosis kid and Bidens.

Sen Graham is one sick piece of garbage. The nerve of that worthless fool is beyond belief. He has done nothing, with many of his followers in the Senate, for America

A vast majority of American voters do, not just Republicans.

THIS is exactly what I voted for. Thank you President Trump!
