Only 11% of Americans Support Obama’s Plan to Arm Syrian Terrorists

11 percent. That means hardly any Democrats even support this terrible idea. These polls coming from mainstream media outlets show most Americans are absolutely against it.

This could be something for the Republican Party to jump on to if too many of its top politicians weren’t wired into the same Arab Spring nonsense.

Asked to pick a response to stop the killing of civilians in Syria, just 15 percent in the poll say they favor U.S. military action, and only 11 percent want to provide arms to the opposition.

And the opposition in bipartisan.

Perhaps more significantly, those attitudes cut across party lines and almost all demographic groups. “Whether you voted for Romney or Obama, they have the same opinion on Syria,” said Republican pollster Bill McInturff, who conducted the survey with the Democratic firm Hart Research.

Taking the right position on this is a win-win for the GOP. If Romney had been smarter about this in the third debate, it might have made a difference.

The Gallup poll shows that there is no group in favor of military action. Regardless of race and creed (though Sunni Muslims in the US would presumably be for).
