Democrats and their allies in the media have
been hammering Trump over the airstrike that killed Qassem Soleimani. They have been determined to turn this into
a negative for the president. Unfortunately for them, it’s not working. A recent poll found that most Americans are
on Trump’s side. The Daily Wire reports: More Americans Side With Trump On Soleimani
Strike: Poll A new survey from progressive outlet HuffPost
found that more Americans agree with President Trump’s decision to take out Iran’s top
military leader than disagree with him. The new HuffPost-YouGov survey found that
a plurality of Americans, including nearly half of registered voters, approve of Trump
ordering a strategic airstrike on General Qassem Soleimani, head of the Iranian Revolutionary
Guard Corps-Quds Force, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization. The poll, which gauged the opinions of 1,000
U.S. adults between Jan. 3 and Jan. 5, found that 43 percent of respondents approve of
Trump’s order to kill Soleimani, including 30 percent who say they “strongly” approve
of it and 13 percent who say they “somewhat” approve. A slightly lower number, 38 percent, disapprove
of the order, with 26 percent saying they strongly disapprove and 12 percent saying
they somewhat disapprove. Slightly less than a fifth, 19 percent, say
they are unsure. The split is similar among registered voters:
47 percent approve (35 percent strongly, 12 somewhat) and 42 percent disapprove (30 percent
strongly, 12 percent somewhat), while 12 percent are unsure.
