A sizable majority of Americans disapprove of arming Syrian rebels

A sizable majority of Americans disapproves of the Obama administration’s decision to send weapons to anti-government rebels in Syria.

Overall, 66 percent of voters disagree with arming the rebels, according to a Fox News national poll released Wednesday. Twenty-four percent approve.

The objection is widespread across demographic groups, as large numbers of men (63 percent), women (69 percent), those under age 45 (65 percent) and over age 45 (66 percent), as well as those who have served in the military (67 percent) and those who haven’t (66 percent) disapprove.
