Voters in the swing states of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania overwhelmingly oppose President Barack Obama's nuclear deal with Iran, a new poll has found.

According to a Quinnipiac poll conducted Aug. 7-18 of over 1,000 voters in each state, more than 2-1 are against the proposed pact:
  • In Florida, voters oppose the nuclear pact with Iran at 61-25 percent and say 61-27 percent the deal would make the world less safe rather than safer.
  • In Ohio, voters oppose the nuclear pact 58-24 percent and say 56-26 percent the deal would make the world less safe rather than safer.
  • In Pennsylvania, voters oppose the accord 61-26 percent and say 60-27 percent the deal would make the world less safe.
"Voters in these key presidential swing states are strongly opposed to the president's key foreign policy initiative — the nuclear deal with Iran," Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said in a statement.

Meanwhile, the poll also examined views on the president's proposals to limit pollution from coal-fired energy plans. On this issue, the news is more upbeat for the president, as voters support his plans by more than 2-1:
  • In Florida, voters support 69-25 percent federal requirements that owners of coal-burning power plants reduce their levels of pollution, while 73-24 percent believe the efforts are needed to clean the air. However, 45-41 percent say the proposals will be too expensive.
  • In Ohio, 67-27 percent of voters support requiring owners of coal-burning power plants to reduce pollution, and 70-24 percent say the efforts are required to clean the air. Voters are divided on whether the proposal will be too expensive by 43-41 percent.
  • In Pennsylvania, voters support the federal requirements that owners of coal-burning power plants reduce pollution by 67-28 percent. Seventy-two percent to 24 percent say the efforts are needed to clean the air but, again, are evenly divided on whether the plans are too expensive by 44-44 percent.
"Despite President Barack Obama's poor job approval rating in Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, voters back his Environmental Protection Agency's plan to limit emissions from coal-fired power plants," Brown said.

"It is noteworthy that Pennsylvania and Ohio are industrial states which would disproportionately be affected by the new regulations."
