Voters Aren’t Sold on Troop Withdrawal from Syria

President Trump, intent on getting U.S. troops out of the Middle East, has angered hawkish members of both major political parties with his decision to withdraw from Syria. Voters tend to oppose his decision as well.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 37% of Likely U.S. Voters agree with Trump’s decision to remove all U.S. troops from Syria, but 47% disagree. A sizable 16%, however, are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
