WASHINGTON - The annual American Jewish Committee poll of American Jews shows a decrease in support for a US strike on Iran should diplomacy not end its suspected nuclear weapons program.
According to the 2013 poll released Monday, 52 percent of American Jews favor such a strike — 24 percent strongly and 28 percent somewhat.
In last year’s poll, 64.1 percent of respondents said they would support such a strike — 36.1 percent somewhat and 28 percent strongly.
There was a smaller drop in support for an Israeli strike in such a case: 67 percent this year as opposed to 72.5 percent last year, almost within the poll’s margin of error of 5 percentage points.
