US public skeptical - and hawkish - on Iran

Sixty-one percent of the 1,500 respondents interviewed by Pew said it was "more important to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons, even if it means taking military action" than to "avoid military conflict", according to the survey, which was conducted over a five-day period ending on Monday.

At the same time, 63% of respondents - an increase of 9% since last time Pew posed the question, in 2006 - said they approved of Washington negotiating directly with Iran over the future of its nuclear program, as it began doing last Thursday in Geneva where the two countries held their highest-level public talks in 30 years
