Of course there was a loud group that opposed the war and they became increasingly vocal and gained credence in the public's eye as the war drug on. Time may have altered public acceptance and perception of what Vietnam was all about. Richard Nixon said: "No event in American History is more misundertood than the Vietnam War. It was misreported then, and it is misremembered now. Rarely have so many people been wrong about so much. Never have the consequences of their misunderstanding been so tragic." Two ratings provided by General William Westmorland in his post-war research deserve mention: 91 percent of all Vietnam Vets polled say they are glad they served and 74 percent said they would do it again even knowing the war's outcome.

US involvement in Vietnam started in the early 1950's. We were there as advisors. We officially became part of the battle in 1965 and pulled out in 1975. It is important to understand that President Johnson did NOT have Congressional approval to declare war, therefore we were not officially at war. ALSO when we pulled out - because of not being 'at war' with Vietnam - we did not lose the war. We officially pulled out and chose not to continue fighting.

There is no answer to this, only speculation. Presidential approval ratings were first introduced in the 1930s by George Gallup.
