Although President Barack Obama has received enough support for the Iran nuclear deal to pass Congress, a new Washington Post-ABC News Poll shows dwindling support for the deal, with 51 percent of Americans supporting it and 41 percent opposed.

The latest numbers show a move in opinion from March when 59 percent approved the deal and 31 percent opposed it, The Washington Post reports.

The Post notes that the decline in support stems from the Republicans who moved from 47 percent support in March to 30 percent now. And, support has slipped among independents, but by a smaller degree. Two-thirds of Democrats currently support the deal, as do half of independents.

Despite conservative lawmakers' fight against the deal for months, a move to kill the deal died in the Senate last week. While there is a possibility of another vote disapproving the deal, Obama has gained enough support from senators to override it.

According to the Post, multiple public polls show declining support for the deal. Although each poll is worded differently, altering the approval and disapproval ratings, there is a clear trend line across all polls showing that the deal is becoming less popular.

The Post-ABC poll was conducted Sept. 7 to 10 among a random national sample of 1,003 adults, including landline and cellphone respondents. Results among the half samples of 483 and 515 respondents each have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.
