American Jews support the Iran nuclear agreement, with a majority of them calling for Congress to approve the deal in a recent survey.

The survey of 501 Jews in the LA Jewish Journal Survey on July 16-20 found that 53 percent backed congressional approval of the deal, versus 35 percent who opposed it, The Jewish Journal reports.

In addition, 522 people were polled in a "national survey" that primarily consisted of non-Jewish Americans.

In that sample, only 28 percent backed the accord with Tehran, compared with 24 percent who were against it.

However, 48 percent responded that they "don't know enough to say."

As for congressional approval, that was favored by 41 percent in the national survey, while 38 percent were opposed. An additional 21 percent were undecided.

The margin of error is 6 percent for the Jewish survey and 5.2 percent for the national survey, the Journal reports.

In other findings:
  • Only 42 percent of the Jewish respondents said they were somewhat or very confident that the deal would prevent Iran from building nuclear weapons in the next decade. Fifty-four percent said they were not so confident or not confident at all.
  • Jews believing the deal will lead to more rather than less stability in the Middle East were higher, 46-41 percent.
  • Forty-nine percent, however, believe the deal will endanger Israel even more — not less — at 33 percent. The tally is about the same in the national survey, 48-32 percent.
