Poll: Most Americans against joining Israel in Iran strike

A majority of Americans would oppose joining Israel in a war should it strike Iran, a poll showed.

The Chicago Council on Public Affairs poll, released Thursday, shows 56 percent of respondents answer "No, it shouldn't" to the statement, "If Israel were to bomb Iran's nuclear facilities, Iran were to retaliate against Israel, and the two were to go to war, the United States should or should not bring its military forces into the war on the side of Israel."

Those responding, "Yes, it should" amounted to 38 percent. In other findings, a majority -- 58 percent -- favored "making a major effort to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict" as a measure to fight terrorism, with 39 percent opposing.
