A new poll conducted by ComRes for CNN across France, Germany and the UK has revealed a lack of enthusiasm for military intervention in Syria.
Overall, French respondents were more likely to back a strike, but the poll revealed some conflicting views:
- 32% of French, 20% of German and 16% of UK respondents backed military action
- 52% of Germans, 36% of French and 23% of UK respondents think intervention would help regime change
- 39% of UK, 50% of German and 47% of French respondents said military action would prevent future chemical weapons use
- 30% of UK respondents favoured doing nothing, as did 27% of French people and 22% of Germans.
