January 13, 2020 | by James G. Dalton
The Trump administration’s de-escalation of Iranian tension has become a divisive partisan issue, according to the latest ABC News/Ipsos poll released Sunday.
Overwhelmingly, almost unanimously in opposing directions, 87% percent of Republicans back Trump on Iran, while 90% of Democrats do not, according to the poll.
One point of two-party agreement in the divisive poll results is 93% of respondents have some concern of war with Iran, including 73% at least “somewhat concerned” and 32% “very concerned.” Just 7% are “not concerned at all,” while 21% are “not so concerned.”
The poll conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs’ KnowledgePanel surveyed 525 adults between Jan. 10-11 with a margin of error of 4.8 percentage points.
