Poll: Majority Of Americans Support A Nuclear Deal With Iran

Washington Post: Poll: Clear majority supports nuclear deal with Iran

By a nearly 2 to 1 margin, Americans support the notion of striking a deal with Iran that restricts the nation’s nuclear program in exchange for loosening sanctions, a new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds.

But the survey — released hours before Tuesday’s negotiating deadline — also finds few Americans are hopeful that such an agreement will be effective. Nearly six in 10 say they are not confident that a deal will prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons, unchanged from 15 months ago, when the United States, France, Britain, Germany, China and Russia reached an interim agreement with Iran aimed at sealing a long-term deal.

Overall, the poll finds 59 percent support an agreement in which the United States and its negotiating partners lift major economic sanctions in exchange for restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program. Thirty-one percent oppose a deal.

WNU Editor: The key part of this poll is not that most Americans support a nuclear deal .... it is that few Americans believe that such an agreement will be effective.

I don't believe this poll. It's construction and timing stink. You're right, nobody believes this deal is in anyway effective.

It does seem obvious that Iran cannot be controlled and the rest of the world has shown it will do nothing to change that.

Pollster know all the psychological techniques to word and skew polls.

One has target into the weeds of poll contraction anymore.

Why should i worry about a crap poll and crap negotiators like Kerry?

I was worried, but I should have remembered that Iran will play Lucy and Kerry will play charlie Brown. So why worry?

At least charlie Brown was lovable. Kerry is lurch-like.
