Americans oppose the recent nuclear deal made between the world’s superpowers and Iran by a margin of almost two to one, according to the results of an independent national poll carried out by Quinnipiac University.
In a sampling of American voters queried between July 23-28 the deal was rejected by a margin of 57 to 28 percent. Similarly, 58 to 30 percent of respondents said the deal will make the world less safe.
The poll also indicated the majority of voters from every political affiliation opposed the deal.
Among Republicans, 86 percent opposed the agreement, with three percent approving it. Among Democrats, 52 percent were in opposition with 32 percent in favor. The breakdown among American voters identifying as Independents was 55 – 29 percent opposed.
Opposition did not shift much between men and women. Men opposed the deal 59 – 30 percent with women opposing it 56 – 27 percent.
The poll was taken among a sampling of 1,644 registered voters with a margin of error of 2.4 percentage points. Voters were called through their home or cell phones, with surveyors speaking to them in either English or Spanish depending on the individual’s preference.
Results of a recent poll taken recently by CNN/ORC also indicated that the majority of Americans oppose the nuclear agreement. In that poll, 52 percent of adult Americans said they want Congress to reject the deal, while 44 percent said it should be approved.
