Political Group Survey: the AFA survey question on the War on Terror
Source: American Family Association survey
The American Family Association Action Voter Guide asked if candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'The U.S. military should wait for militant Islamic groups to directly threaten our national security on our shores, rather than eradicate them now wherever they may be worldwide.' American Family Association Action (AFA Action) produces the online "iVoterGuide" for selected state and federal races. The mission of AFA Action is to inform and mobilize individuals to strengthen the biblical foundations of America. Also see the PVS survey question on Mideast intervention and the AFA survey question on Islamic threats.
