CNN Poll: More than half back Iranian nuclear deal

By Paul Steinhauser

A majority of Americans support an interim deal with Iran that would ease some economic sanctions on that country in exchange for concessions on Iran's nuclear program, according to a new national poll.

A CNN/ORC International survey released Thursday indicates that 56% of the public would favor an international agreement that would impose major restrictions on Iran's nuclear program but not end it completely, with 39% opposed to such an agreement.

"Predictably, there is a partisan divide on that issue, with two-thirds of Democrats favoring a deal along those lines but only 45% of Republicans agreeing with that view," CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said.

      Yeah, that's great. Too bad Chuck Schumer is getting ready to introduce bipartisan legislation strengthening the sanctions against Iran because of his distain for the deal the administration made. Before you slam republicans, check your own arty first.

    CNN would love you to believe that governing by poll is legitimate. Just call it Obamiran, and you'll have it.

    America is the root of all terror. America has invaded sixty countries since world war 2.
    In 1953 America overthrow Iran's democratic government Mohammad Mosaddegh and installed a brutal dictator Shah. America helped Shah of Iran to establish secret police and killed thousands of Iranian people.
    During Iran-Iraq war evil America supported Suddam Hossain and killed millions of Iranian people. In 1989, America, is the only country ever, shot down Iran's civilian air plane, killing 290 people.
    In 2003,America invaded Iraq and killed 1,000,000+ innocent Iraqi people and 4,000,000+ Iraqi people were displaced.
    Now America is a failed state with huge debt. Its debt will be 22 trillion by 2015.

    A majority of Americans shouldn't be allowed to vote due to lack of understanding of the situation.

    today the chant in iran is "I wish 'death to America' soon is reality." That was this morning not in the 80's.

    How dumb can we possibly be. Obama I hold you directly responsible. Mccain time to get loud sir.
