The Democrats’ nuclear deal with Iran inspired a backlash against Democrats that Party Most Loved by the Media is not accustomed to. A new Gallup poll out today suggests that Americans still hate it. Let’s never forget that embattled U.S. Senator voted for this deal that has made our world less safe today and for future generations. Bennet’s vote with President Obama is shaping the U.S. Senate race here in Colorado.
According to the poll, just nine percent of Republicans approve of the deal and only 30 percent of Independents support the deal. Surprisingly, only 51 percent of Democrats support the deal. From the poll’s analysis:
“But the reaching of and the implementation of the agreement appear to have done little to assuage Americans’ concerns about Iranian nuclear weapons. Three-quarters of U.S. adults say the potential development of nuclear weapons by Iran represents a critical threat to the vital interests of the U.S. in the next 10 years.”
But, it gets worse:
“…But whatever the cause of Americans’ skepticism, it may take years of demonstrated Iranian compliance with the terms of the deal before most U.S. adults come around to the agreement, if they ever do.”
Sen. Bennet has less than seven months. Perhaps even worse for Bennet, his support for this deal caused the Jewish community, which often supports Democrats, to rally funding to oppose him because of the threat this deal posed to Israel.
The poll was conducted using cell phones and landlines on February 3-7, 2016, and included 1,021 adults over the age of 18 living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. The margin of error is +/- four percentage points.
