Web Poll: Your stance on Syria - WRBL

Web Poll: Your stance on Syria

Posted: Updated:

Now that you've had a chance to listen to the President Obama - both during his live address Tuesday evening and in a CBS News interview Monday - and hear from the leader of Syria during an interview Monday, WRBL News 3 wants to know where you stand on the crisis in Syria.

On August 29, we first asked you if you thought military action should be taken against Syria, the place where the White House says more than 1,400 people died in a chemical attack last month. An estimated 400 children died during that attack.

In our first round of polling, 77.8% of you were against taking military action. In this survey, that equaled about 140 voters out of 180 who voted.

After President Obama announced he would be sending the issue to Congress, we asked again what you thought. Still a majority of you opposed military action. In this poll, 109 of you answered and 100 of you - - or about 92% - - were against military action.

Now that President Obama has wrapped up his speech, we want to see if there has been any shift in opinion. Take our poll here on WRBL.com and leave us your comments. Then watch WRBL News 3 for updated poll results.
