Survey: Facts Drive Iran Deal Opposition

‘The More Americans Learn About Key Details Within The Iran Agreement, The Less They Like It’

NEW YORK – Secure America Now released fresh survey findings today revealing broad American opposition to key details of the nuclear deal with Iran. The survey of 800 likely general election voters shows strong majorities who oppose the billions in Iranian sanction relief and the lack of independent U.S. inspections included in the agreement.

“It’s abundantly clear that the more Americans learn about key details within the Iran agreement, the less they like it,” said Pat Caddell, pollster and Advisor to President Carter and other major Democrats. “And opposition to the deal is growing as the facts work their way into kitchen table conversations across the country.”

Key Findings:

  • After learning the facts about the Iran deal, 65% want their Senator or Congressman to oppose it. 45% wanted Congress to oppose before learning the facts.
  • 80% oppose giving Iran $150 billion in sanction relief in the next few weeks and months without Congressional approval.
  • 72% said that Congress should NOT approve a deal that does not allow independent U.S. inspections of Iran’s military laboratories.
  • 68% do NOT believe that U.N. inspections with a 24-day notification period before will stop Iran from cheating.
  • 65% think this deal will have other nations follow through on their threat to attain nuclear weapons to protect themselves from Iran.
  • 63% disagree that the deal prevents Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. Only 29% agree.
  • 77% agree that if we don’t stop Iran now they will eventually get nuclear weapons and our children will likely face nuclear war. Only 17% disagreed.
  • Other important results and further details are available on the attached slide presentation.
