Looks like we’re ready for a new approach, and what’s even more telling is how evenly divided Republicans are on this issue.
Again, I point to the parity in the Republican numbers as a sign that McCain could have a lot of problems in the fall against an Obama foreign policy doctrine of enemy engagement.
And some more details about Iran specifically…
About 6 in 10 Americans (59%) think it would be a good idea for the president of the United States to meet with the president of Iran. This includes about half of Republicans, a majority of independents, and most Democrats.
Both positions enjoy broad popular appeal, with majorities of men, women, younger and older Americans, and those from different regions of the country all saying direct presidential-level talks with Iran and other enemies are a good idea.
Looks like people are ready for a change.
