A poll released today by Reuters and Ipsos revealed support for a U.S. attack on Iran’s nuclear program if evidence emerges that the program is aimed at creating nuclear weapons. Fifty-six percent of respondents said they’d favor an attack backed by such evidence, which does not appear in IAEA reports and is absent in remarks from top U.S. security officials. Support for an attack, according to the poll, dropped only slightly when weighed against the likely possibility of rising gas prices. Republican support for an attack outstripped that of Democrats or independents.
