In a rare show of consensus, most Americans, regardless of their political affiliation, believe the United States should help Afghan civilians who worked as translators for the American military enter the country in the wake of the Taliban's takeover of Afghanistan, a new CBS News/YouGov poll released Sunday finds.
Of those surveyed, 81 percent said they agreed with the notion, including 90 percent of Democrats, 79 percent of Independents, and 76 percent of Republicans.
Additionally, 59 percent of Americans don't think the U.S. is currently doing enough to help Afghans leave their home country, compared to 27 percent who think the government is "doing the right amount." Only 14 percent think the administration is "doing too much."
