Washington: Majority of Americans believe that the war in Afghanistan cannot be won and there would be no conclusion at all, an opinion poll said.

As many as 68 per cent of Americans believe that US will neither win nor lose the war, which will go on without resolution, according to a poll by Clarus Research Group, which was conducted between October 1 and 4.

According to polls, 61 per cent of Democrats want to reduce the number of US troops in Afghanistan, while 17 per cent want to send in additional troops. Fifty-four per cent of Republicans and 47 per cent of independents are in favour of sending in more troops, it said.

The poll was based on telephone interviews with 1,000 adults nationwide and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
