Most Lawmakers are Undecided on Syria

A USA Today survey of senators and representatives "finds that only a small fraction of the 533 lawmakers -- 22 senators and 22 House members -- are willing to say they will support the use of force in response to the reported use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime."

"Far more overall -- 19 senators and 130 House members -- say they will oppose a resolution that would authorize military strikes. There are two vacant seats in the House where lawmakers resigned and have not yet been replaced."

"The largest group of lawmakers remains undecided, including a majority of the Senate and the House."
