San Fernando Valley residents want troops home, survey finds

Trade agreements are disastrous and troops should leave Afghanistan immediately, according to a survey released last week by Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks).

The survey showed that 58% of San Fernando Valley residents who answered a questionnaire think trade agreements send millions of good jobs overseas and hurt the U.S. economy.

Also, 43% of the residents surveyed thought U.S. troops should be pulled out of Afghanistan now.

When asked about the Middle East conflict, 48% of the respondents thought the U.S. should strongly support Israel, 23% felt the U.S. should support Palestinians at least as much as Israel and another 23% thought the U.S. should stay out of the conflict.


About 75,000 questionnaires were sent out and 1,747 were returned to Sherman’s office.
