WASHINGTON, Sept. 13 (UPI) -- More than half of the respondents in a UPI-Zogby International poll said they oppose the war in Iraq.

Some 45 percent of those asked said they strongly opposed the war and 8.8 percent said they were somewhat opposed. Meanwhile, 29.5 percent said they strongly support the war and 15.7 percent said they somewhat support the U.S.-led action.

Very little of the support came from Democratic respondents, 2.9 percent of whom said they strongly supported the war and 3.2 percent of whom said they somewhat supported it. Fully 83.5 percent of Democrats were strongly opposed to the war and 10 percent were somewhat opposed.

Republicans weren't quite as ardent in the other direction but still 59.9 percent of that poll subset said they strongly supported the war and 27 percent somewhat supported it. Some 7.1 percent said they were strongly opposed and 4.5 percent said they were somewhat opposed to the war.

The Zogby interactive poll, with 7,081 U.S. residents participating, was carried out Sept. 7-10 and has a margin of error of 1.2 percentage points.
