A new Morning Consult poll reveals more American
voters support Trump’s Soleimani strike than those that oppose it. 47% of those surveyed supported the strike
compared to 40% who oppose it. 14% had no opinion. The Hill reports Nearly half of American voters
approve of President Trump’s decision to order the airstrike that killed Iranian Maj.
Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the leader of Iran’s elite Quds Force, according to a new Morning
Consult poll. The survey, which was released on Wednesday
but conducted before Iran responded to the strike by firing rockets at Iraqi bases housing
U.S. troops, found that 47 percent of American voters supported Trump’s move to authorize
a drone strike on Soleimani outside the Baghdad airport last week. Forty percent of voters said they opposed
the decision, while 14 percent said they did not have an opinion. The opinions divided strongly along with partisan
lines, with 70 percent of Democrats opposing the airstrike and 85 percent of Republicans
supporting it. Sixty-one percent of Republican respondents
said they strongly approved Trump’s decision.
