US public opinion on the Afghanistan withdrawal

What has the US public thought about the withdrawal from Afghanistan? Nathaniel Rakich had a valuable overview in FiveThirtyEight on August 20, 202 of polling toward the Afghanistan withdrawal in the US, Frank Newport at Gallup has a summary of both recent and past surveys, and Amber Phillips looks at trends since 2002 in the Washington Post.

Below I’ve pulled out key figures from several recent surveys.

Ipsos/Chicago Council (August 23-26); the link also points to prior surveys on this question:

Washington Post/ABC (Aug. 29-Sep. 1):

CBS News/YouGov (August 18-20):

Pew Research Center (Aug. 23-29):
