Poll: Swing State Voters Oppose Iran Nuclear Deal by More Than 2-1 Margin

Voters in the swing states of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida oppose the nuclear agreement with Iran, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), by more than a 2 to 1 margin, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released yesterday.

Voters in Florida oppose the deal by a margin of 61% to 25%; in Ohio by a margin of 58% to 24%; and in Pennsylvania by a margin of 61% to 26%. The percentages of respondents who oppose and support the JCPOA aligns closely with the percentages of those who view the agreement as making the world less or more safe. Voters in Florida believe that the deal will make the world less safe by a margin of 61% to 27%; in Ohio by a margin of 56% to 26%; and in Pennsylvania by a margin of 60% to 27%.

A nationwide Quinnipiac poll earlier this month found that Americans opposed the deal by a margin of 57% to 28%.

Similar polling has documented growing opposition to the JCPOA across the country. A CNN poll last week showed that Americans wanted Congress to reject the agreement by a margin of 56% to 41%, an increase from a July poll that showed a 52% to 44% margin.

A Monmouth University poll this month revealed that 61% of Americans don’t trust Iran to abide by the JCPOA. In addition, 41% of the respondents thought that Iran got more of what it wanted out of the agreement, while only 14% thought that the United States did.

The Israel Project published two polls last month — one of American Jews, the other of all Americans — which found that the more details respondents knew about the deal, the less they approved of it. The Israel Project publishes The Tower.
