A majority of Americans oppose military action in Syria, and such action has lower support than any other conflict in the past 14 years, according to a new poll from Gallup.

Just 36 percent of Americans support action in Syria, compared to 59 percent for Iraq in 2003, 82 percent for Afghanistan in 2001, 43 percent for Kosovo in 1999 and 62 percent for the Persian Gulf in 1991.


Support for action in Syria has increased since Gallup’s May survey, which found 68 percent opposed to intervention and just 24 percent in favor.
