USA - Iran: Poll shows that 61% Americans Think Iran Unlikely To Honor Nuclear Treaty With U.S

US Voters are almost evenly divided over the framework deal the Obama administration has cut with Iran to slow the latter’s nuclear weapons program. But most doubt that Iran will abide by its terms or that its compliance can be verified by the United States.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 39% of Likely U.S. Voters favor the agreement the United States has reached with Iran that ends some economic sanctions on that country in exchange for verifiable cutbacks in Iran’s nuclear weapons program. But slightly more (41%) oppose that deal. Twenty percent (20%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The opposition and uncertainty is perhaps driven in part by the finding that just 30% think Iran is even somewhat likely to uphold its end of the deal. Sixty-one percent (61%) consider Iran’s compliance unlikely. This includes seven percent (7%) who feel Iran is Very Likely to honor the terms of the deal versus 30% who say that’s Not At All Likely.

Forty percent (40%) of voters are at least somewhat confident that the United States and its allies will be able to verify that Iran is not building nuclear weapons, but that includes only 13% who are Very Confident. Fifty-seven percent (57%) are not confident that Iran’s compliance with the agreement can be verified, with 32% who are Not At All Confident.
