Iran deal is overwhelmingly supported by American voters — 54 to 38 percent

A new poll out today from Public Policy Polling shows Americans overwhelmingly in favor of the Iran deal, and there’s no downside for pols who support it.

Here are the numbers. By 54 percent to 38 percent, Americans are for the deal. Democrats split 75 to 17. Hear that, Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer and Cory Booker?

But Republican oppose it 54 to 36.

The poll says that there are “basically no potential repercussions politically” for Congress persons who vote for the deal. The poll means, from voters. Voters want the agreement and the country to move forward, according to the survey, and just 36 percent of overall voters say they’ll be less likely down the line to vote for a member who supports the Iran agreement. (Here’s one problem with the poll: Sheldon Adelson and Haim Saban are merely 2 citizens, united, in this reckoning. But they actually are controlling some of the politics of the matter).

“The message is clear: voters think the Iran deal is a good one for the country, they want Congress to move it along, and if anything they’ll reward elected officials in the future who throw their support behind the agreement. It’s a winner politically.”

Poll was of 730 voters between July 23 and 24.

Polling data reveals the soft underbelly in the numbers. 35 percent of all voters strongly support the deal. But 32 percent strongly oppose it. It’s the somewhat’s who swing the numbers wildly in favor.

The American people, especially the Liberals, aren’t so stupid as some on this blog assume. The whole point of an educated populace and free press is that the crowd gets smart, over time, and can eventually rectify even deeply established corruption. This is why the Likud pivot to a partisan right-wing strategy in the US is so fundamentally short-sided and dangerous for Israel. It ain’t going to work, those who support Israel in this effort… Read more »

How can this be? Caroline Glick just told us, with lots of spittle & jutted chin, that she knows Americans and they overwhelmingly support Israel and are totally against the Iran Deal?

Let us begin by noting that the Iranian nuclear issue is but a pretext for achieving strategic objectives. The US wants Iran controlled, whereas, Israel wants Iran destroyed. Over at CounterPunch, Ismael Hussein-Zadeh analyzes the deal from a strategic perspective with interesting conclusions. He feels that the empire more or less achieved its objectives with Iran subject to snap-back sanctions at the US discretion. Interestingly, this result was a victory for the Iranian elites who… Read more »
