A recent poll by Reuters/Ipsos revealed that a majority of Americans would support US military action against Iran if there were evidence that it is pursuing nuclear weapons.

The poll, conducted from March 8-11, reported that 56% of respondents would support US military action, while 39% opposed.

In response to the question of whether they would back US military action if it meant an increase in gasoline prices, a majority -53%- still expressed support for military action, while 42% said they would not.

The poll also found that 62 % of Americans surveyed would support Israel undertaking a military strike against Tehran.

The Obama administration has said that higher gasoline prices are one likely result of a military attack on Iran, and has urged the international community – and particularly Israel – to give sanctions more time.

Unsurprisingly, the poll also revealed that Republicans were more supportive of military action than Democrats – whereas 70% of Republicans would back military force, only 46% percent of Democrats agreed.

The poll was conducted among 1,084 adults across the United States, and has a margin of error of 3.1%.
