A new Rasmussen poll suggests that the criticism of President Obama for not being tough enough on behalf of Iranian dissidents — which has come mainly from the right — is not the majority view among American likely voters, and is not even a full majority view among Republicans.
The question is pretty straightforward: “Has President Obama been too aggressive in supporting the reformers in Iran, not aggressive enough, or has his response been about right?”
The numbers: 43% about right, 35% not aggressive enough, and 9% too aggressive. The margin of error is Â±3%.
From the pollster’s analysis: “Democrats overwhelmingly view the president’s response as about right while 49% of Republicans say he has not been aggressive enough. Voters not affiliated with either party are closely divided on the question.”
