Opposition to Striking Syria Advances With Nearly Two-Thirds Now Opposed

Nearly two-thirds of Americans in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll oppose U.S. missile strikes against Syria, with momentum counter to the administration’s proposed military action. Support rises if Congress were to authorize an attack, but only to about an even split.

As things stand now, 64 percent oppose air strikes, up by 5 percentage points from a week ago; just 30 percent are in favor, down by 6 points. If Congress rejects action, support drops to 17 percent, with 76 percent opposed. [cont.]
