Whether 82% believe it will be effective against terrorism or not, it
remains the case that 58% apparently believe we should attack Iran
anyway, so stopping terrorism is NOT the reason they support doing so.

That could be too. Some people think it is about oil. Others think it
is about the Prez finishing his daddy's wars.
