Quinnipiac Poll: 86 Percent Want Negotiated Deal With NKorea

By    |   Wednesday, 16 August 2017 03:33 PM

Eighty-six percent of American voters say that the United States and its allies should negotiate with North Korea "to prevent them from using nuclear weapons," a new Quinnipiac University survey finds.

But 56 percent of the 1,361 voters surveyed said that they lacked confidence that President Donald Trump can handle the situation effectively.

Here are the results:

Do you think the United States will be able to resolve the situation with North Korea diplomatically or through military force?

  • Diplomatically: 60 percent.
  • Military force: 30 percent.

Would you support or oppose the U.S. and its allies negotiating a deal with North Korea to prevent them from using nuclear weapons?

  • Support: 86 percent.
  • Oppose: 9 percent.

Do you have confidence in President Trump to handle the situation with North Korea or not?

  • No: 56 percent.
  • Yes: 42 percent.

Do you support or oppose using convention weapons to attack North Korea's nuclear facilities?

  • Oppose: 47 percent.
  • Support: 45 percent.

Do you think that North Korea poses a threat to the United States, or not?

  • Yes: 79 percent.
  • No: 20 percent.

"Most American voters are not confident that President Donald Trump can resolve the precarious Korean standoff, but they remain optimistic that somehow things will work out," said Tim Malloy, the poll's assistant director. "They have deep concern over what it means to our security.

"Voters are closely divided on whether to attack Korea with conventional weapons," he added. "At the same time, an overwhelming majority want a negotiated settlement."

The Quinnipiac University poll was conducted between last Wednesday and Tuesday and has a margin of error of 3.4 percent.
