Most Americans believe sanctions against Iran not working

By an overwhelming 60-33 margin, most Americans do not believe that sanctions against Iran are stopping it from developing nuclear weapons. No kidding.
Economic sanctions to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons aren't effective, American voters say 60 - 33 percent, and 50 percent of voters say the U.S. should take military action to stop Iran's nuclear program if sanctions don't work, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

American voters tell the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll 55 - 36 percent that the U.S. should not take military action against Iran. But 25 percent of those opponents shift to support military action if sanctions fail.

The combined result is 50 percent in favor of military action if sanctions fail, with 38 percent opposed.

If Israel attacks Iran, 46 percent of voters say the U.S. should support that move, with 6 percent who say the U.S. should oppose it and 44 percent who say the U.S. should be neutral.

A total of 88 percent of Americans voters say Iran's nuclear program is a "very serious" or "somewhat serious" threat to U.S. national security with no disagreement from any group.
Wait until Iran tests an ICBM. That will wake up the rest of them.
