More Americans back Donald Trump's decision to conduct an airstrike that took out Iranian General Qassem Soleimani than those who disapprove, according to a poll released Monday.
The Huffington Post/YouGov poll shows 43 per cent of Americans surveyed between January 3-5 approve of the president's decision to direct the drone strike while 38 per cent are against the move.
Trump directed an airstrike on an airport in Baghdad, Iraq, which took out Soleimani on Friday. The move came after demonstrators who back pro-Iranian Shia militia raided on New Years Eve the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, which has never been breached before.
HuffPost/YouGov conducted a poll of 1,000 American adults in the three days following Soleimani's death.
