RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A new poll of Virginians shows that a majority want American troops out of Afghanistan and Libya.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday shows that 55 percent believe the United States should not be fighting in Afghanistan now and 60 percent oppose the U.S. role in Libya.

Opposition to the Libyan conflict was strong and consistent regardless of gender, party affiliation or age groups.

The poll also found that 49 percent of the 1,434 registered Virginia voters surveyed felt the health care reforms Congress and President Barack Obama enacted last year should be repealed. Forty-two percent felt the reforms should not be repealed.

The poll had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 2.6 percent.
