The Hill's Syria Whip List: Obama seeks to turn tide with House, public (video)

President Obama is facing steep opposition in the House to a military strike against Syria. 

Dozens of Republicans oppose Obama's request for authorization of a military strike. They have been joined by more than 30 Democrats who say they would vote against or are leaning toward voting against a strike.

Prospects in the Senate are better, but there is no guarantee the White House will prevail there either. 

Public opinion is against the president. Several polls show more voters oppose intervening in Syria than support a strike, even if it is to punish that country for the use of chemical weapons. 

Obama is trying to turn around public opinion with a media offensive and will address the nation Tuesday night from the Oval Office. But it is unclear whether it will be possible for him to turn the numbers around in the House and Senate. 

The following is the The Hill's Whip List on Syria.
