Poll: Americans Prepared for Military Action Against Iran

According to a new Pew poll, 64 percent of Americans believe that it’s “more important to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons than to avoid a military conflict.” They point out that “majorities across nearly all demographic groups” agree — 80 percent of Republicans prioritized preventing a nuclear Iran over avoiding military conflict, but a majority of Democrats, 62 percent, did too. As President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu meet in Israel today to discuss the Iran question, among other issues, it appears the American public is ready to support the president if he decides a military intervention against Iran is necessary.
