Chuck Todd: Half of GOP opposes Syria because of politics, but 75% of Dems ‘rational and principled’

Democrats tend to be more “principled” in their opposition to President Obama’s request for authorization for military strikes in Syria than their Republican counterparts in Congress, according to NBC’s Chuck Todd.
