The American public is extremely hesitant to intervene directly in Syria’s fighting.
Indeed, a June 1st NBC/Wall Street Journal poll found:
The American public is extremely hesitant to intervene directly in Syria’s civil war.
Asked to pick a response to stop the killing of civilians in Syria, just 15 percent in the poll say they favor U.S. military action, and only 11 percent want to provide arms to the opposition.
By comparison, a plurality of respondents — 42 percent — prefer to provide only humanitarian assistance, and 24 percent believe the U.S. shouldn’t take any action.
Perhaps more significantly, those attitudes cut across party lines and almost all demographic groups.
“Whether you voted for Romney or Obama, they have the same opinion on Syria,” said Republican pollster Bill McInturff, who conducted the survey with the Democratic firm Hart Research.
“It explains the great reticence of the American public,”
Similarly, Gallup found on May 31st:
Sixty-eight percent of Americans say the United States should not use military action in Syria … even though they expect that diplomatic efforts will fail to bring peace.
Gallup found that 72% of Democrats, 70% of Independents and 64% of Republicans oppose war in Syria.
