Fifty percent of Americans believe military action should be taken to stop Iran’s nuclear program if sanctions do not work, a national poll released on Wednesday said.

The Quinnipiac University survey also found that more Americans disapprove, by 50 percent to 44 percent, of the job President Barack Obama is doing — although more people than not approve of the way he has handled foreign policy, including his management of thorny US relations with Tehran.

Some 55 percent of respondents said the United States should not take immediate military action against Iran, with 36 percent in favor.

The number in favor of using force increases to 50 percent however if sanctions fail, with 38 percent against.
