Feds Weigh In With Their Opinions on Attacking Iraq

These are the results of the Fedsmith.com poll conducted during the week of February 10th on whether the United States should attack Iraq.

Readers of Fedsmith.com weighed in with their opinions last week on the question of whether the United States should attack Iraq. 49 percent said “no” and just under 39 percent said “yes.” Another 12 percent were undecided.

The results were much more definitive on the question of whether the United States should attack Iraq if the authorizing body of the United Nations did not vote in favor of military action against Iraq. 62 percent said we should not undertake military action without UN support. About 38 percent said we should take unilateral action, if necessary.

Secretary of State Colin Powell’s presentation swayed the opinion of 33% of those submitting their vote in the poll while 57 percent said the presentation did not impact their opinion on these issues.

These results reflect the results from Fedsmith.com readers who chose to participate in the poll. It is not reflect the result of a scientific survey.
