Two separate polls this week reveal that far more Americans oppose the “ObamaDeal” with Iran than those who favor it, and opposition grew to nearly two-thirds when respondents answered after hearing more argument for and against the agreement,
“Secure America Now” released a poll Wednesday that shows 45 percent of registered voters want Congressman to vote against the deal, an increase of 8 percent from last month, The Hill reported.
An earlier poll this week by CNN/ORC produced results of 52 percent wanting Congress to reject the deal. Opposition grows with age, and even a majority of Democrats 35 years old and order said they are against the deal. A small majority – 53 percent – of Democrats between the ages of 18 and 34 were in favor.
The Secure America Now poll included a very significant notation, reported by The Hill:
After hearing additional arguments for and against the deal, the opposition to the deal grew to 65 percent in the poll, indicating that advocates on both sides could have significant influence on the national debate over the coming weeks.
Democratic pollster Pat Caddell, who helped carry out the survey, told The Hill, “There’s some real message for Democratic senators here, which is why so many of them I think feel caught, and they rightly should, in between the arguments.”
Only 51 percent of Democrat respondents said that ObamaDeal “makes America safer and more secure,” and the number dropped to 47 percent after they heard additional arguments from both sides.
Caddell declared that the rise in opposition to ObamaDeal is a trend and “it’s going to get worse.”
