March 6, 2012 by Sam Rolley
A new poll for The Hill shows that more than half of likely voters agree with Ron Paul in regard to staying out of other countries’ business.
According to the poll, 57 percent of respondents believe the Administration of Barack Obama should “leave the situation alone” in Syria. Only 25 percent think the United States should “get more involved” in helping rebels in their fight against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.
When asked about the Presidential administration’s foreign relations with Israel, respondents were split in their opinions; 32 percent said Obama should be more supportive of the country, 25 percent say President is too supportive and the rest believe the U.S.-Israel relationship is “about right.”
The poll also found that 52 percent of respondents would be very (28 percent) or somewhat (24 percent) supportive of an Israeli strike on Iran, while 41 percent were very (19 percent) or somewhat (22 percent) opposed. Only 21 percent of respondents were very supportive of a U.S. strike on Iran, 20 percent were somewhat supportive.
