Most voters want diplomacy with North Korea, few favor preemptive strike: poll

Published

WASHINGTON—A majority of voters want the U.S. to pursue diplomacy with North Korea amid the nuclear crisis, according to a new Suffolk University/USA Today poll.

About 61 percent said that the U.S. should curtail North Korea’s nuclear program through diplomatic means while 19.90 percent favored military action.

If the U.S. does take military action against North Korea, 69 percent said that it should do so only in response to a North Korean attack while 15 percent said it should be preemptive.

The poll comes as President Donald Trump has expressed public doubts about the effectiveness of diplomacy against the secretive regime.

The poll was conducted among 1,000 respondents between Sept. 27 through Oct. 1. There is a margin of error of plus/minus 3 percentage points.
