Quick hit: Seventy-five percent of Americans support ladies in combat

After much debate, the Pentagon announced last month that it was lifting the ban on women in combat. And it turns out most Americans are ok with that. 

According to a survey from Quinnipiac University released on Thursday, American voters support women serving in combat 75-22 percent. There was little breakdown along gender lines: Men support that measure 73-24 percent, and women say the same, 77-21 percent.

There was less support for women to be drafted. But let’s hope that just means there’s less support for there to actually BE a draft.
