Poll: Only 5% of Americans want war with Iran

The Hill-HarrisX survey, published on Tuesday, showed that only five percent of hawkish voters wanted the US administration to outright declare war on the Islamic Republic, while another 19 percent favored a “limited military strike” on Iran. The majority of voters, 58 percent, said they preferred a non-military response to Iran's shooting down of a US spy drone last week. Forty-nine percent of voters also said they wanted the US to “seek a negotiated solution” to the recent hostilities, while nine percent said that Washington should take no action. The Hill-HarrisX survey was conducted between June 22 and 23 among a statistically representative panel of 1,001 registered voters. The poll has a sampling margin of error of 3.1 percentage points and a 95 percent confidence level. Tensions have been running high between the two countries since Washington’s decision in May last year to abandon the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions on Tehran as part of a “maximum pressure” campaign aimed at forcing it to renegotiate a new deal that addresses its ballistic missile program and regional influence as well. The US has also sent warships, bombers and additional troops to the region in the wake of suspicious tanker attacks in the Sea of Oman, which it has blamed on Iran without providing evidence. Tensions between Washington and Tehran hit a new high after Iran shot down a US surveillance drone on Thursday following its violation of Iranian airspace. However, Washington insists that the aircraft was flying above international waters.
