Group Says 87 Percent Of Americans Support Missile Defense

Over Half Believe A Real Threat Exists

A national poll released Tuesday revealed that 87 percent of the American Public believes that the United States should have a missile defense system, according to a group dedicated to the development of just such a program.

The Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance adds its public survey showed 58% of the American public thinks there is a real threat from missiles carrying weapons of mass destruction, and that missile defense is the preferred option over pre-emptive military action or diplomatic efforts for dealing with the proliferation of missiles and weapons of mass destruction by nation states.

"The American Public support for missile defense is at the highest level ever recorded, and has shown the continual increase in the public's awareness of the threat and their support for the United States to have missile defense to defend them from that threat since 2002, when the President and Congress made the decision to deploy missile defenses for our country," stated Riki Ellison, President of the Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance.

The poll was done by Opinion Research Corporation with a 3% plus or minus margin of error. Opinion Research Corporation partners with CNN on Opinion Research Polls.
