Poll Finds Support for Iran Strike
The Wall Street Journal:
In new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, 54% say U.S. should strike militarily if necessary to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Support reaches 62% if U.S. joins international coalition.
Military officials warn a successful strike might only set back Iran’s program, not halt it, and prompt Iranian retaliation in Iraq. But “even people who are for troop withdrawals” from Iraq back military action through a coalition, says Democratic pollster Peter Hart, who conducts Journal/NBC survey with Republican Bill McInturff.
Though Independents and Republicans would back unilateral strike, Democrats are opposed.
