A KFAB poll today had a vote on Senator Hagel speaking out against Sarah Palin being the VP nominee. The results weren’t all that surprising. 83% say that he should keep his mouth shut.

While voting with the Conservative side, he’s received a lot of criticism for the stance he adopted on the invasion and war in Iraq.

He’s also recieved criticism for blocking legislative reform.
