US opinion remains strongly against military strikes on Syria, according to a poll released Monday.

The CNN poll found 59 per cent of those surveyed oppose military action, while 39 per cent are in favour of it.

If Congress were to ultimately vote against strikes, then the numbers are even more stark: 71 per cent of Americans said they would then oppose a strike, and only 27 per cent would approve.

The poll was conducted from Friday to Sunday, and included 1,022 respondents.
