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).
