WASHINGTON - Overwhelming majorities in the Arab countries surrounding Syria want to see President Bashar Assad step down, according to a new Pew Research Center poll.

The only neighboring country surveyed that did not strongly endorse Assad's departure was Lebanon, where the public was split sharply along sectarian divides. Israel was not included in the report.
