CBS Poll: Majority Support “Diplomatic Approach” with Iran

According to a CBS poll conducted ahead of last weekend’s presidential debate on national security and foreign policy, most people in the U.S. support pursuing diplomacy with Iran. Here are the details:

– 55% think Iran is a threat to the U.S. that can be contained with diplomacy.

– Only 15% say Iran is a threat that requires military action now

– 17% do not consider Iran a threat.

– Americans across the political spectrum support diplomacy with Iran rather than military action, but Republicans are more than twice as likely as Democrats to say Iran is a threat that requires military action.
