Poll: 43 Percent Say Obama Erred in Bergdahl Deal

More than four in 10 Americans believe the prisoner exchange that secured the release of U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl was the wrong move, according to a USA Today/Pew Research Center poll.

Forty-three percent believe the Obama administration made a mistake by trading five high-ranking Taliban commanders held at the Guantanamo Bay detainee facility for Bergdahl, while 34 percent believe it was the right thing to do. The remaining 23 percent had no opinion.
