US Public Opinion Disapproves of Iran Deal

December 12, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

The more the American public learns about the Iran nuclear agreement reached in Geneva last month, the less it seems to like it, according to aPew Research Pew Research/USA Today Poll conducted this week.

The poll found that 43 percent of Americans disapprove of the agreement, while 32% approve and 25% don’t know.

These results were sharply different from a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted just days after the agreement which found that Americans backed the deal by a 2-to-1 margin.

The Pew poll found large disparities between Democrats and Republicans on this issue, with 50% of Democrats approving, as opposed to only 14% of Republicans.

The survey also found that the accord has not reduced skepticism among the American public about Iran’s leaders. Among those who have heard about the interim agreement, 62% said that Iran’s leaders are “not serious” about addressing international concerns over its nuclear program, while only 29% said they were serious.

The poll was conducted between December 3-8 among 2,001 respondents, with a 2.6% margin of error.

A Channel 2 poll conducted in late November found that most Israelis – 60% – said that the agreement endangered Israel, while 25% said it did not. The poll also showed that a majority of Israelis backed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s recent criticism of the Obama administration’s Iranian policy, with 58% saying the criticism was justified, and 28% saying it was not.
