UPI: A USA Today-CNN-Gallup Poll says Americans not only think Iran will develop nuclear weapons but also use them against the United States. United Press International

WASHINGTON, Feb. 14 (UPI) — A USA Today-CNN-Gallup Poll says Americans not only think Iran will develop nuclear weapons but also use them against the United States.

The poll done over the last weekend also says Americans fear the Bush administration will be “too quick” to order military action against Iran, USA Today reported Tuesday.

The poll said eight out of 10 respondents predicted Iran would provide a nuclear weapon to terrorists to attack the United States or Israel. Six out of 10 respondents said Iran itself would deploy nuclear weapons against the United States.

On Prophet Mohammed cartoons, six out of 10 said the European newspapers that published them acted irresponsibly. But, by a 3-to-1 margin, they blamed the resulting furor on Muslims’ intolerance of different points of views, the newspaper said.

The poll said 55 percent showed lack of confidence in the administration’s ability to handle the situation in Iran.

President Bush’s approval rating dipped to 39 percent, showing the State of the Union address and other subsequent speeches did not help lift the president’s ratings.

The majority of the respondents (55 percent) also said the war in Iraq was a mistake. Only 31 percent, the lowest so far, believed the United States and its allies are winning in Iraq.
