A total of 1042 people from 90 countries responded to the question: “Do you think President Obama should apologize for the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945?”

Of the three possible answers, 42 percent said “No, but he should commit to the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons,” 39 percent chose “Yes,” and 19 percent replied “Absolutely not.”
