This page follows the recent public opinion polls on the nuclear agreement with Iran.

Recent updates

— A fresh poll shows how partisan the Iran debate has become. survey by the University of Maryland finds that Americans narrowly support the deal, with 52 percent wanting Congress to approve it and 47 percent wanting the pact rejected. Nearly seven in 10 Democrats support it, and an identical share of Republicans are opposed. Among independents, six in 10 express support. A similar survey in February found that more than six in 10 people overall backed the broad outlines of a deal, with majorities among both Democrats and Republicans. Other public polls have shown more negative attitudes toward the deal: 55 percent of voters opposed it in a Quinnipiac University poll released Monday — more than double the 25 percent who supported it.
