A HuffPost/YouGov survey finds 51 percent of Americans support the president's decision to order the airstrikes in retaliation for a chemical attack last week that killed civilians in northern Syrian.
Thirty-two percent of Americans are opposed to the strikes and 17 percent are uncertain.
Among Trump voters, 83 percent support the president's decision, while just 11 percent oppose it.
This is a surprisingly small margin at the outset of an operation. It doesn't bode well for committing US troops to an operation in Syria and Iraq, effectively winking back the clock to before the US withdrew from Iraq.
It appears that strongly committed America Firsters are a small minority of Trump supporters. But considering that Trump lost the popular vote, every supporter counts, especially taking into account that Trump has almost no support inside the bubble and strong opposition both from the opposition party and within his own party.
