Pew Research Poll: 48% of Americans Against Military Strike against Syria, Only 29% Support It, 48% Against … ABC/WAPO Poll: 36% For, 59% Against


America has finally reached a bipartisan consensus, they are against Obama’s actions of wanting a military strike against Syria …

A PEW Research poll shows that Barack Obama, John Kerry, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the new found Democrat military hawks have little support among the American people with regards to a military action against Syria for Assad’s use of chemical weapons against his people. According to the poll, 48% of Americans are against military action, while only  a meager 29% support it. The numbers against any military action against Syria are negative for Obama across party lines. Finally we have bi-partisan agreement, (Democrats: pro 29% – against 48%) … (Republicans: pro 35% – against 40%) … (Independents: pro 29%, against 50%).

But does Obama care what “We the People” think? Hardly, look how we got Obamacare rammed down our throats. Remember the lies were were told about that as well when the “Campaigner” in Chief misrepresented that as well? Most Americans understand that the using of chemical weapons is hideous, but how is it different from the 100′s of thousands of people previously killed in this Syrian civil war? They also understand that with a “chicken hawk” like Obama at the reigns, an attack on Assad and taking out his military and infrastructure would only allow Al-Qaeda to swoop in to power. So why doesn’t Obama, or does he?

President Obama faces an uphill battle in making the case for U.S. military action in Syria. By a 48% to 29% margin, more Americans oppose than support conducting military airstrikes against Syria in response to reports that the Syrian government used chemical weapons.

The new national survey by the Pew Research Center, conducted Aug. 29-Sept. 1 among 1,000 adults, finds that Obama has significant ground to make up in his own party. Just 29% of Democrats favor conducting airstrikes against Syria while 48% are opposed. Opinion among independents is similar (29% favor, 50% oppose). Republicans are more divided, with 35% favoring airstrikes and 40% opposed.

The military action is resoundingly looked upon by Americans as doing little good and in fact making matters much worse in the Middle East. A whopping 74% believe that U.S. airstrikes in Syria are likely to create a backlash against the United States and its allies in the region. Gee, ya think? Barack Obama claims that GITMO is a vehicle for terrorist recruitment, um, what the hell does he think a solo US strike with no, none, nada collation would do? Another 61% of Americans think that such a military action could lead to a long term military action in Syria.

CNN also is reporting that another national poll, an ABC News/Washington Post survey shows that only 36% of the public supports launching missile strikes against the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad if the U.S. has determined that Damascus has used chemical weapons against its own citizens. 59% of Americans oppose military action.

Nearly six in 10 Americans in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll oppose unilateral U.S. missile strikes against Syria, and even more oppose arming the Syrian rebels – a complication for Barack Obama and proponents of military action in Congress alike.

Even given the United States’ assertion that the Syrian government used chemical weapons in the civil war there, 59 percent in the national survey, conducted Wednesday through Sunday, oppose U.S. missile strikes, far more than the 36 percent who support them.

The American people have lost trust in Obama and his foreign policy because frankly, he has none. Obama’s vision has worked so well in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and now Syria.

      I just wonder how many of these “war pigs” were peaceniks and protesters during Vietnam??? Now they not only want to be our ruling class, but the ruling class of the whole world. The beards have indeed grown longer overnight…
