CNN Poll Shows Majority Support for Interim Iran Deal

JewishPress Logo

A poll showed majority support for the Obama administration strategy of easing sanctions on Iran in exchange for a partial rollback of its nuclear program.

A CNN poll released Thursday and conducted by ORC international showed 56 percent of respondents favored “an interim deal that would ease some of those economic sanctions and in exchange require Iran to accept major restrictions on its nuclear program but not end it completely and submit to greater international inspection of its nuclear facilities” and 39 percent opposed.

The poll, based on phone interviews between Nov. 18-20 of 843 respondents, has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.

A Washington Post-ABC poll published Nov. 19 showed 64 percent of respondents supporting a deal “in which the United States and other countries would lift some of their economic sanctions against Iran, in exchange for Iran restricting its nuclear program in a way that makes it harder for it to produce nuclear weapons” and 30 percent opposed.

Unlike the CNN poll, the Post-ABC poll did not specifically address the crux of the difference between the Obama administration and Israel: Whether Iran should suspend all or some of its nuclear activities in an interim deal.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, backed by some U.S. lawmakers, has insisted that Iran must totally dismantle its nuclear program and end all enrichment in exchange for any easing of sanctions.

A third round of talks between Iran and major powers is underway in Geneva this week.

The Post-ABC poll also showed that only 36 percent of respondents were confident that such a deal would stop Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, while 61 percent were not confident.

This poll was conducted Nov. 14-17 over the phone and reaching 1,006 respondents. It too had a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.

  1. Because a threat to Israel is not perceived as a threat to them.

  2. Israel cannot afford a nuclear Iran, it’s just that simple. It’s my opinion that it’s very likely too late, but if Israel has intelligence that shows that a strike could set Iran back then that’s what I would suspect we will see in the not too distant future. These talks that drag on and don’t actually stop Iran from making nukes are really only helping them to complete more of their work towards their likely goal. As I have pointed out, of course Israel is serious, they have no choice. What makes anyone think that Israel can just sit by and take this big of a chance? It seems insane to me, yet that’s what were witnessing. No one has good enough intelligence at this point to know that Iran will not be able to complete their weapons program, or know that they will not cheat on this deal, so in my humble opinion it has to be shut down. Other than that I’m afraid there is likely going to be a strike. Could we be witnessing an issue that could be the trigger to the Isaiah 17 war? My own leaders are having talks that would have been helpful about a year ago, but now I have to wonder if there is even enough time for the talks to conclude. Though a strike may start a regional war, possibly the war in Is 17; waiting for a nuclear war with multiple nuclear exchanges would be a much worse war, possibly global. In 2012 I wrote a booklet that talks about some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the seven year tribulation and other soon to take place events. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s about 6 or 7 pages, so it’s a short read.
