Would Iran attack U.S. mainland?
Half of Americans believe if Israel or the U.S. attacks nuclear sites in Iran, Iran or its allies will attempt to retaliate by attacking the U.S. mainland.
There is heightened speculation Israel or the U.S. will attack Iranian nuclear sites in an effort to kill or stall Iran’s suspected nuclear weapons program.
