Voters approve of President Donald Trump's missile strike in Syria by a factor of 2 to 1, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday.

In the poll:

  • Sixty-one percent believe the missile strike in Syria was the right decision; 31 percent disagree.

Trump's job approval rating improved thanks to the Syria strike, but it remains in the negatives.

  • Approve of Trump's job performance: 40 percent.
  • Disapprove: 56 percent.

An April 4 survey had 35 percent of voters approving of Trump's performance.

However, most voters do not believe the Syria strike will stop the Syrian government from using chemical weapons.

  • Srike would not be effective: 62 percent.
  • Strike will be effective: 30 percent.

Over half of voters in the poll believe that America must take action in Syria.

  • U.S. has "moral responsibility" to get involved: 52 percent.
  • U.S. should not get involved: 40 percent.

Most voters in the poll — 78 percent — show concern about the U.S. going to war with Syria. A slightly smaller number — 72 percent — believe that getting involved in Syria would lead to armed conflict with Russia.

Voters are more evenly split over how the president is handling issues with North Korea.

  • Approve: 45 percent.
  • Disapprove: 42 percent.

The poll was conducted between April 12-18 among 1,062 voters around the U.S., with a plus or minus 3 percentage-point margin of error.
