CNN Breaking News

A new national survey shows President Barack Obama is swimming against a strong tide of public opinion as he presses his case for a U.S. military strike in Syria.

Nearly six in 10 Americans think Congress should not authorize limited military action in Syria, with roughly seven in 10 saying that air strikes against Syria would not achieve any significant goals for the U.S. and that the U.S. does not have any national interest in Syria.

If Congress authorizes military action against Syria, a 55% majority would still oppose air strikes against Syrian military targets -- and if Congress does not do so, opposition to U.S. air strikes rises to 71%.

The CNN/ORC International poll surveyed 1,022 adult Americans on September 6-8. The margin of error is +/- 3%.
