Voters in the three key swing states of Florida, Pennsylvania and Ohio opposed the Obama administration’s landmark nuclear accord with Iran by a 2-1 margin, a Quinnipiac University poll revealed on Monday.

A similar percentage of voters also agreed that the nuclear deal would make the world a less safe place, though the goal of negotiators from the U.S. and five other world powers was to implement a plan to curtail Iran’s ability to pursue nuclear weapons.

Florida voters opposed the pact by 61-25, Pennsylvania voters opposed it by 61-26 and Ohio voters by 58-24. As for whether the Obama administration’s key foreign policy initiative would make the world a safer place, Florida voters said “no” by 61-27, Pennsylvania voters by 60-27 and Ohio voters by 56-26 — suggesting that most voters do not believe President Barack Obama’s assertion that the only two options are the nuclear deal as it is now or war with Iran.

The Hill reported that at least one lawmaker from these three states, Sen. Bob Casey Jr. is among the 13 Democrats still undecided on the nuclear deal. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) on Sunday became the latest Democratic senator to throw his weight behind the deal.

The Quinnipiac numbers also echoed other recent polls, such as one by nonprofit foreign policy group Secure America Now, which showed that 62 percent of Americans did not feel the nuclear deal made the world a safer place. A CNN/ORC International poll released last week showed that 56% of Americans wanted their representatives to reject the deal, and a full 60% said they disapproved of Obama’s handling of the Iran situation.

    By the way, according to all the assessments, if Israel had carried out the attack, Iran would already be a nuclear state today.

    The Iranian nuclear weapon issue is not about morality, it’s about politics. Even a rudimentary study into this issue would reveal that Obama’s “deal” amounts to a suicide pact with one of the most vial regimes in the world. If Obama was truly concerned about the welfare of others, he would have continued with sanctions. Harry Reid has been to several AIPAC events, he professes to be a long time supporter of Israel. The decision to back Obama’s “deal” proves otherwise. There are certain issues that are of such importance, politics should be transcended, this is one of those times.

    Insofar as Casey is no idiot, this son of Governor Casey must be putting partisan loyalty ahead of national loyalty, While Catholic Scranton appreciates loyalty, it is far from the Battle of Gettysburg, the Cradle of Liberty whose citizens provided traitors stockades, tar and feathers.

  • Obama Stated at one time as he realized the real danger, that will not be allowed to get a nuclear bomb!!!
    OBAMA! What changed?
    Why do you still want to defend and push the DEAL?
    What agenda do you have?
    Put all and I mean ALL the cards on the table not just what you have been feeding us up till now and maybe JUST MAYBE we will agree with you, but at least we will be able to make an intelligent decision, unlike in our opinion you are not doing now!
    We are grown ups and we can take the truth!!!!!

    How can anyone doubt in all sincerity thta this deal is horrifically BAD.

  • Robert Davis

    Fortunately these voters are more intelligent than populist socialists so called by euphemism “liberals” although they are the contrary of liberals ie totalitarians, regressive and dogmatists. It takes all those epithets to set forth a priority to nukes which evidently iran intends to use against the US and its allies over its security. US and Israeli lefters are the dumbest in the world.

    Substitute USA for each time the name Australia appears and then decide if you want to retain a Muslim Governemt in the USA.
    This is very interesting and we all need to read it from start to finish. And send it on to everyone.
    Maybe this is why our Australian Muslims are so quiet and not speaking out about any atrocities.(this is true for the while world)
    Can a good Muslim become a good Australian ?
    This question was forwarded to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia  for 20 years.
    The following is his reply:
    Theologically – no. . . . Because his allegiance is to Allah, The moon god of Arabia .
    Religiously – no.. . . Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah except Islam . (Quran, 2:256)(Koran)
    Scripturaly – no. . . Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran.
    Geographically – no . Because his allegiance is to Mecca , to which he turns in prayer five times a day.
    Socially – no. . . Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews ..
    Politically – no.. . . Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders),
    who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America , (the great Satan) , Australia and the rest of the free world.
    Domestically – no. .. . Because he is instructed to marry four Women and beat and scourge his wife
    when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34 )
    Intellectually – no. . Because he cannot accept the Australian Constitution since it is based on Biblical
    principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.
    Philosophically – no. . . . Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran does not allow freedom of religion
    and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.
    Spiritually – no.. . . Because when we declare ‘one nation under God,’ The Christian’s God is loving and kind,
    while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in the Quran’s 99 excellent names.
    Therefore, after much study and deliberation…. Perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS
    in this country. – – – They obviously cannot be both ‘good’ Muslims and good Australians. Call it what you
    wish it’s still the truth. You had better believe it. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our
    country and our future.

    The religious war is bigger than we know or understand. …..
    Footnote: The Muslims have said they will destroy us from within. SO FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.

    According to democrats, some scientists, “militaries” and the EU the best way to reduce the risks of Nuke wars is to allow an increased number of crazy countries to own nukes. This must be contra-intuitive. To say the least.

    The nuclear deal will no doubt be ratified . Do not raise false hopes . The Republicans too have financial interests behind it .

  • Michael Mayben

    Any Congressional Member who is voting in favor of the Iran Deal is a traitor to American and all it’s citizens. This a shameful betrayal of all Christians and those of the Jewish faith negotiated by treasonous President Obama, a Islamic sympathizer and a Muslim at heart, and Secretary of State Kerry who is Obama’s lackey who does as Obama tells him to do and a ultra liberal. Americans must vote against any Congress Member who supports the Iran Deal when these people seek re-election! It is important that all Americans send a message to Congress that they will be held accountable for betraying their constituents.

  • RobiMac

    Meaning?

    This stuff is reported on as if it will actually make a dent in politics. Recent history has shown us that Obama doesn’t care about anyone’s objections or rejections. And….neither has ever stopped him.

  • Ben kramer

    He is not running for reelection and he has the veto power. End of story, end of game.
