Poll: Americans Clearly Don't Trust, Don't Want Iran Deal

By    |   Monday, 03 Aug 2015 07:52 AM

American voters are overwhelmingly against the Iran nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration, a new poll has found.

According to a Quinnipiac University poll conducted July 23-28 of 1,644 registered voters, 57 percent oppose the deal compared to 28 percent who support it. Republicans and independents are most strongly against the deal while Democrats give it lukewarm support.

Specifically, 86 percent of Republicans are against the deal compared to a mere 3 percent in favor. Independent voters oppose the deal 55 percent to 29 percent, while Democrats support the deal 52 percent to 32 percent.

The poll also found that a majority of voters, 58 percent to 30 percent, also believe the nuclear accord will make the world less safe.

"There's not a lot of love for the proposed nuclear deal with Iran. Only a bare majority of Democrats support the pact," Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll, said in a statement.

Meanwhile, a strong majority of voters agree with Pope Francis' call for action to address climate change. Sixty-five percent of voters agree, compared to 27 percent who disagree.

Support is very strong among Democrats: 84 percent compared to 9 percent who oppose it. Independents support the Pope by 67 percent to 27 percent. Republicans disagree with the Pope by 48 percent to 40 percent.

Almost half of voters (49 percent compared to 44 percent) believe that climate change is not a moral issue. Sixty-eight percent of voters, compared to 27 percent, say it is caused by human activity.

"Pope Francis is doing much better with his call for action on climate change. Voters say the Pope got it right: Climate change is a problem. And it's our fault. But does humanity's damage to mother earth have its roots in moral failure? On that claim by the Pope, it's a nope."

The results were broadly in keeping with the findings in July indicating that voters in the swing states of Colorado, Iowa and Virginia back the Pope's position on climate change by 2-1.
