The American people stand strongly with President Trump on the controversy of the Iran nuclear deal.

After choosing to forgo recertifying the deal last week, the president has called on Congress to renegotiate the terms of the deal with the nuclear weapons-seeking Iranian regime. An overwhelming majority of voters — 70 percent — say the Obama-era deal should be renegotiated, according to a new Harvard-Harris Poll.

Broken down by party affiliation, 85 percent of Republicans, 71 percent of independents, and 57 percent of Democrats support new terms of the deal.

A 60 percent majority of Americans believes Obama’s deal with Iran was bad for the U.S, and two-thirds of those surveyed believes Iran has not complied with the terms, including half of Democratic voters.

In a rebuke of the Obama administration’s style of unilateral decision-making, a whopping 81 percent said a new deal needs to be received by Congress as a treaty and should require Senate approval.

After President Trump decertified the Iran deal, Congress has 60 days to act and put sanctions against Iran back in place. If Congress fails to act, the president has declared he will officially cancel the deal.
