Nearly Two-Thirds Of Americans Oppose Intervention In Libyan Civil War
While Washington talking heads continue to advocate for American military involvement in Libya, the American people feel otherwise:
As official Washington buzzes with talk of possible U.S. military intervention in Libya, the majority of U.S. voters continue to favor a hands-off approach.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 22% of Likely U.S. Voters think the United States should get more directly involved in the Libyan crisis. Sixty-three percent (63%) say America should leave the situation alone. Fifteen percent (15%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
These findings echo those in a survey in late February when 67% said the United States should stay out of the political situation unfolding in several Arab countries including Libya.
Sounds to me like another one of those times when the public is ahead of the pundits.
