Poll: GOP More Likely To Support Military Force, But Few Support Iran Attack Now

In advance of tonight’s GOP foreign policy debate, CNN released its new poll findings on international issues. “Republicans are ready and willing to use U.S. military force in other countries; Independents and Democrats tend to be very reluctant to do so,” CNN reports. Only 40 percent of Republicans polled said they were “very reluctant” to use military force, while 57 percent of Democrats and 59 percent of independents said the same. However, there is little appetite for a military attack on Iran at this time, even among Republicans. According to the poll, only 16 percent of all respondents support an attack now, with 22 percent of Republicans taking that view.
