Majority of US public opposes Israel striking Iran: UMD poll

Maryland (US), Wed, 14 Mar 2012 ANI

Maryland (US), Mar. 14 (ANI): A new University of Maryland poll has said that nearly seven in ten (69 percent) Americans favor that the United States and other major powers continue to pursue negotiations with Iran.


Only one in four Americans favor Israel conducting a military strike against Iran's nuclear program.


Fifty-eight percent Republicans, 79 percent Democrats and 67 percent Independents favour talks rather than strikes.


Consistent with this emphasis on a diplomatic approach, three in four Americans say that the United States should primarily act through the U.N. Security Council rather than by itself in dealing with the problem of Iran's nuclear program.


The University of Maryland Sadat Chair for Peace and Development and PIPA, the University of Maryland-affiliated Program on International Policy Attitudes, conducted the study.


The poll of 727 Americans has a margin of error of 4.5 percent and was fielded between March 3 and 7 by Knowledge Networks. (ANI)
