Poll Watch: Rasmussen (R) Survey on Iran's Nuclear Weapons Program

Rasmussen (R) Poll on Iran's Nuclear Weapons Program

If Israel attacks Iran, should the United States help Israel, help Iran, or do nothing?
  • Help Israel 51% (48%)
  • Help Iran 4% (2%)
  • Do nothing 30% (37%)
  • Undecided 14% (13%)
National survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted July 19-20, 2012. The margin of error is +/- 3 percentage points. Results from the poll conducted February 4-5, 2012 are in parentheses.

Inside the numbers:
Men are much more hawkish than women when it comes to helping Israel if it attacks Iran. Sixty-one percent (61%) of male voters think that’s a good idea, compared to 43% of female voters. Voters over 40 are much more supportive of helping Israel than those who are younger.

Seventy-two percent (72%) of Republicans believe the United States should help Israel if it attacks Iran, but just 36% of Democrats and 44% of voters not affiliated with either major party agree.

Sixty-nine percent (69%) of voters who have served in the military think the United States should help Israel if it attacks Iran, compared to 47% of those who have not been in uniform. Among those with an immediate family member currently in the military, 56% think America should help Israel, a view shared by 50% of those without a family member in the service.
