Gallup: 65% of Americans Approve of Drone Attacks, but Half Not Following Subject Closely

gallup_drones2013

ANYONE SURPRISED that most people aren’t following the drone issue closely at all?

Nearly two-thirds of Americans (65%) think the U.S. government should use drones to launch airstrikes in other countries against suspected terrorists. Americans are, however, much less likely to say the U.S. should use drones to launch airstrikes in other countries against U.S. citizens living abroad who are suspected terrorists (41%); to launch airstrikes in the U.S. against suspected terrorists living here (25%); and to launch airstrikes in the U.S. against U.S. citizens living here who are suspected terrorists (13%).

    You won’t be surprised that I’m not surprised …
