ABC News Poll: Majority of Americans say Trump Wrong on Iran

ABC News/Ipsos Poll_Do you approve or disapprove of the way President Trump is handling the current situation with Iran?


In a week dominated by increased tension with Iran and speculation over when impeachment articles would be delivered to the U.S. Senate, a majority of Americans said they disapprove of President Trump’s handling of the situation with Iran and feel less safe, according to a new ABC News/Ipsos poll.

But when it comes to a key conflict at home, impeachment, attitudes are more mixed, with Americans split in their assessment of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s motivations for delaying the transmittal of the articles of impeachment.

  1. Mr. & Mrs.Joe Public in the USA are a complete JOKE …. the “USA  USA  USA Crowd” they cheer our “Warriors” who are “keeping America safe” cheering every war set up by neocons who provided all the propaganda & “Support Our Troops bumper stickers” for the indoctrinated USA Crowd”.
    They just love Macho Ultra Violence like the tactic of “overwhelming” force with winning the  utmost necessity no matter how many millions are “murdered” countries laid waste & poor people devastated in the process & their country covered in “Depleted Uranium”.
    Everyone must see General Wesley Clark’s video “7 Countries In 5 Years”.
    Yes, blowing everything up , creating more refugees while back in the good old USA the “USA Gangs” keep on cheering every war news.
    OR perhaps a general public is so accustomed to YEARS of waring they could care less ? 
    BTW – No country wants or DARES to INVADE the USA but the “USA Gang” are suckered into believing 9/11 was an attack by those mythical 19 Saudi Terrorists conjured up by the CIA & the Israeli Mossad .

  2. I`m an Independent and I totally disapprove of Trump`s actions!! Trump is a Zionist sock puppet and takes orders from his puppet handlers! One of Soleimani`s biggest sins was help prevent globalists from balkanizing the ME and taking over the vast natural resources found there! Getting rid of Assad was one of those efforts and Soleimani was in their way with his military expertise. All this mess is not about Soleimani being a terrorist – it`s about Iran`s natural resources that Trump and his globalist ilk want! It`s a pattern – Iraq, Libya, Syria, Lebanon that Trump is following. Why do people think that the 7 countries on the US hit list are being targeted? I love my country but it has been taken over by globalists hacks on both sides of the aisle. The dirty Democrats in Virginia have proven that!! They want American citizens dis-armed just like globalists do for their New World Order!!! I don`t get why people piss and moan about the way the country is being lead and then vote in the same crooks and expect different results – that`s the definition of insanity!! As an Independent I refuse to vote for anyone in these 2 cesspools!!

  3. So, left a comment, and it would appear your fascist tendencies had the comment deleted, you preach, yet Constitutional rights to speech are not celebrated in your small world.

    Small word, i.e., the fact your site is four pages deep in a Google search…
