At the same time, 34 percent of the 1,025 adult respondents surveyed by telephone oppose military action, and 10 percent don’t know or don’t have an opinion.

Among those closely following the news about a possible attack, 66 percent say we should use force to defend South Korea, 27 percent say we shouldn’t, and 6 percent don’t know or don’t have an opinion.
