Poll: Majority of Americans Wants Congress To Reject Iran Nuclear Deal

Despite President Obama's high approval rating, a majority of Americans want Congress to reject the recently-negotiated Iran nuclear deal.

Obama's approval rating sits at 49 percent — the highest it has been since June 2013 — however, 52 percent of Americans say they would like to see Congress reject one of the president's biggest foreign policy accomplishments in recent years. Forty-four percent say it should be approved, according to a new CNN/ORC poll.

A definite partisan gap exists about desires for the nuclear deal with Iran, which was announced earlier this month: 66 percent of Republicans and 55 percent of independents say Congress should reject it. However, roughly six in 10 (61 percent) of Democrats say the deal should be approved.
