SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Republican-leaning Utah largely supports the war in Iraq, according to a poll that found opinion divided sharply along party lines.

The survey of 612 registered voters was conducted March 17-20 by Dan Jones & Associates for KSL-TV and the Deseret News, which reported the results in a copyright story Monday.

Forty-seven percent of those surveyed said they strongly approved of America's involvement in the war and 27 percent said they somewhat approved. Thirteen percent strongly disapproved, 10 percent somewhat disapproved and the rest didn't know.

The survey found that 92 percent of those who voted Republican in past years either strongly or somewhat approved of the war, while 67 percent of the Democratic voters opposed the war.

The lowest support for the war was in Salt Lake County, but even there it was favored by 63 percent.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percent.
