By a slim margin, Americans oppose sending more troops to Afghanistan, a new Gallup poll finds.

50% say they oppose sending more troops to the war torn country, while 41% say they'd support such a decision.

General Stanley McChrystal, the head of U.S. forces in Iraq, has said the military needs an influx of troops, but Congressional Democrats are wary of any escalation.

The White House has delayed making a decision on troops until they review the military's overall strategy.
