IBD/TIPP polls have consistently favored Israeli military action, and did so again by a 56% to 30% margin in last week's survey.
In answering the question "Do you approve of Israel taking taking military action against Iran to prevent Iran from making nuclear weapons?" the following breakdown was revealed by the latest poll:
• Democrats: 43% approve
• Republicans: 74% approve
• Independents: 56% approve
Meanwhile, in a Pew Research poll of 22 countries last month, a majority in 16 of the states preferred a military strike over tolerating a nuclear Iran. In the U.S., 66% preferred a strike, while 24% objected to it.
In Egypt, 55% supported a military strike on Iran, while 16% opposed it. In Jordan, the figures were 53% to 20% in favor.
On Monday, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev revealed, "Iran is moving closer to possessing the potential which in principle could be used for the creation of nuclear weapons."
