Sixty-six percent of American voters support the U.S. missile attack on a Syrian airbase, while 24 percent oppose it a new Morning Consult/Politico poll reveals.

Here are the highlights of the national survey, which was conducted after President Donald Trump ordered missile strikes at a Syrian airbase.

  • 57 percent trust Trump to take the necessary steps to end the civil war in Syria
  • 52 percent expressed confidence Republicans in Congress would take the right action to end the war
  • 47 percent trusted the United Nations
  • 42 percent expressed confidence in Congressional Democrats
  • 30 percent trusted Turkey
  • 26 expressed confidence in Russia
  • 19 percent trusted Iran

"Sixty-three percent of Americans say the U.S. should be doing more in Syria, but when we ask what concrete actions should be taken, that support falters," said Kyle Dropp, Morning Consult's co-founder and chief research officer, according to Politico.

Here is how the rest of the poll breaks down:

  • 48 percent approve of the job Trump is doing as president, while 47 percent disapprove
  • 26 percent listed the economy as their top issue, followed by security (21 percent), healthcare (16 percent)
  • 51 percent say they approve of Obamacare, compared to 41 percent, who disapprove
