Reaction to Trump’s Iran Strike Is Another Party Line Vote

Voters are evenly divided over President Trump’s decision to have a top Iranian general killed, but as is generally the case with questions regarding the president, it’s a party line vote. More voters than ever, however, now fear war with Iran is likely.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 43% of Likely U.S. Voters favor Trump’s order of a drone strike that killed the Iranian general. Just as many (43%) are opposed, with 14% who are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
