CNN Instant Poll: 6 in 10 speech-watchers back Obama on Syria

A majority of Americans who watched President Barack Obama’s prime time address to the nation said they favor the approach to Syria that the president spelled out in his speech, according to an instant poll.

A CNN/ORC International survey of speech-watchers conducted immediately after the conclusion of Obama’s Tuesday address indicates that 61% support the president’s position on Syria, with 37% opposing his response to the Syrian government’s alleged use of chemical weapons against its own citizens.
