Claim: “According to Gallup polls done throughout the 1960s, young and educated people (meaning college students) were far more likely to support the war than their old and educated fellow citizens. In fact, it was the over-50 crowd that opposed the war more than anyone.”
I couldn't find the Gallups polls from that time, but I found a web page that reproduces the poll and it says the poll was conducted every few months from 1965 to 1971 and that question used in that poll was:
In view of the developments since we entered the fighting in Vietnam, do you think the U.S. made a mistake sending troops to fight in Vietnam?
To me it seems that poll can't be very conclusive about telling if someone supports or not the Vietnam War.
So the question becomes, Are there other polls or evidence that would confirm or refute this claim?
