As President Obama prepares to speak this afternoon on the situation in Libya, a quick look at recent polls show Americans overwhelmingly do not support military intervention.
A CNN/Opinion Research poll finds 74% believe the United States should “leave it to others” to resolve the situation in Libya.
A Pew Research survey finds 65% think the United States doesn’t have the responsibility to do something about the fighting in Libya.
A Fox News poll finds 65% oppose the U.S. military getting involved.
I’d like to think Obama would keep that in mind before committing to that kind of decision.
