WASHINGTON, Aug. 19 (Xinhua) -- A majority of Americans say that the United States should not threaten the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) with military action, according to a new poll.
Nearly six in ten Americans say that the United States should not threaten the DPRK with military action, while 33 percent say that military threats should be issued toward the DPRK, said the CBS News poll released early this week.
Opinions differ largely by party, the poll also found, with 82 percent od Democrats saying the United States should not and 63 percent of Republicans saying the United States should threaten with military action.
However, if the United States fails in its effort to solve the DPRK nuclear issue diplomatically, 58 percent of Americans say that they would approve of military action against the DPRK.
