A new CBS News/New York Times poll shows that the majority of Americans don't think the United States has a responsibility to intervene in Syria, by a margin of 62-24 percent. Last month, only 20 percent of those surveyed thought the U.S. should intervene, while 62 percent still thought it should not.
Still, those following the news about Syria very closely are far more likely to think the U.S. has a responsibility to get involved there. Nearly half (47 percent) of that group thinks the U.S. has a responsibility to get involved there -- though about as many do not (48 percent).
