Poll: Majority back preemptive strike on North Korea nukes

A new Zogby Analytics poll provided to Secrets found that 52 percent back a U.S. first strike.

“A majority (52 percent) of voters agree that the U.S. must deal with North Korea’s nuclear threat and are willing to even support a preemptive strike, as opposed to 36 percent of voters who disagree,” said the survey.

The survey also tested the public’s view of the Syrian conflict and found that few back sending in U.S. troops to end the civil war.

Only 21 percent supported putting boots on the ground, said Zogby.
