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.
