New Polls: Most Americans Against Strike vs. Syria

I dismissed earlier polls here because most people were not up to speed with claims for and against, or even that chemical weapons might have been used--let alone, where Syria is located.  Now enough publicity and debate has gone on to make this Pew poll and this ABC poll significant.  Pew finds Dems and GOPers  against a strike, and larger numbers doubting it will do much good, anyway.  And that's with at least 53% saying that Assad's use of chemical weapons has already been proven.   "Pew's latest findings suggest that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's alleged breach of Obama's so-called "red line" has done little to shift public opinion."

ABC shows even more opposition, about 6 in 10 against.   And 70% don't even want to arm the rebels in Syria (recognizing more than, say, McCain and Graham, that they have large radical base).
