solid majority of American voters back President Barack Obama's interim nuclear deal with Iran, a poll by Quinnipiac University showed Monday.

Some 58 percent of voters back the outline deal, which would curb Iran's atomic program for more than a decade and subject Tehran to tough inspections.

An outline agreement was reached on April 2 between Iran and six world powers, but met with fierce opposition from US Republicans who say it would threaten America's security.

While voters overwhelmingly backed the accord being put to a vote in the Republican-controlled Congress, only 33 percent of voters opposed the deal, far less than the number who vote for the Republican party.

Forty-seven Senate Republicans -- including several potential 2016 presidential candidates -- have signed an open letter to Iran's supreme leader warning the deal might not be honored by a Republican administration.

Iran and international powers hope to have a final deal in place by the end of June.
Some 77 percent of voters said they wanted to see a negotiated settlement to the nuclear crisis rather than military intervention.

"Americans are worried about Iran, but not enough to send in the troops," said Tim Malloy of Quinnipiac.

The poll was taken between April 16 and 21 and surveyed 1,353 registered voters.

The only thing this poll shows is how many people still fall for home-grown propaganda.

The vast majority of people have no idea of the details of such a deal..

Further, the vast majority of people are completely brainwashed by a controlled and complicit corporate media.

Its truly disgusting how many people are completely ignorant of real issues in the world. So this poll is entirely bogus.

Could you explain the truth to us, as you see it? Are you privy to a truth about our need to go to war with Iran, that the majority of Americans are missing?

Right; most of them probably have no idea where Iran is!
Still it's better than listening to the Neocon cowards like "Torquemada" Cheney, "Worm" Wolfowitz and Mr PTSD (untreated) McPain et al, who never heard of a war they didn't want to get the country into.

I wouldn't say it was "entirely bogus" given its usefulness when the neoliberal and neocon war-mongers & chicken hawks claim to "speak for the american people". Such polls reinforce how far removed they are from the desires of the people they claim to represent. When a majority of the population is able to stand up to this barrage of propaganda and misinformation and remain sensible it speaks volumes. I find the condescension of these pugilistic elites breathtaking when they attempt to demonize Iran's purported nuclear program development while in possession of nuclear arms themselves and having refused participation in nuclear disarmament treaties. Particularly Israel whose program is a well-known secret.

Of course we do.

We also believe the entire region--every nation there--should not have nuclear weapons.

All of them.

Saudi Arabia and Iran hate each other. Let's sell them both all of the non-nuclear weapons they can afford. We should lift the sanctions against Iran, because they are far less radical than their Sunni opponents in both ISIS.Saudi and
