A majority of respondents in a new poll say they disapprove of the way President Trump is handling Iran amid heightened tensions between Washington and Tehran.
Fifty-six percent said they disapprove of Trump’s actions toward Iran, compared to 43 percent who approve, according to the poll from ABC News and Ipsos released early Sunday.
Almost nine in 10 Republicans — 87 percent — back Trump on Iran, while 90 percent of Democrats do not, ABC News noted.
Fifty-two percent of respondents also said the U.S. airstrike that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Iraq earlier this month has made the U.S. less safe. One-quarter said the U.S. is safer, and 22 percent said the drone strike hasn’t had much effect one way or the other.
