Poll Finds Most Americans Don’t Trust Iran on Nuclear Deal

Most Americans don’t trust that Iran will abide by an eventual agreement to curtail its nuclear program and not develop an atomic weapon, according to an NBC News poll released on Thursday.

More than half the respondents in the poll said that Iran’s nuclear program represents a major threat to the United States.

The poll found that 68 percent of respondents believed that Iran was either not too likely or not at all likely to abide by a nuclear agreement, compared with 25 percent who said Iran was very likely or somewhat likely.

    As I have been saying, a SOLID 25%-30% of our population is clinically insane.

    • It certainly seems so;)

      Clinically? Or just loony left?

        Well… I could say something witty, but seriously I’d call them “pathologically / narcissistically altruistic”.
        Loony left works too.

        dance…dancetotheradio might offer a more technical diagnosis such as ‘f*cked in the head’.

        Same thing, Frau… 😉

      Careful research indicates it’s 23% +- 2%.
      Clinical insanity is also known as Radical Progressivism.

      During the ’08 election, you’d be surprised how often that 23% figure popped up in the polls.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Bring me up to speed on the significance of that number.
        I’m new to this.

        • Xavier

          On another blog, we noticed that there was a hardcore 23% who absolutely could not be swayed from their radial leftist stance. If you’ll watch the political polls – particularly ones that link to the questions and a demographic breakdown – you’ll see that there is indeed a large segment of society that is batshit crazy. These people would vote for a liberal whose plank was the annihilation of liberals. They are zombies.

            That number caught me by surprise.
            It is encouraging that only less than a quarter of us are suicidal instead of almost a third.
            ‘Sounds about right, if not just a tad low, but maybe that’s just me.

            I bet that a disproportionate number of that 25% are younger rather than older.

            But then when the education system has brought them up to worship Marx and the media feeds them Margaret Atwood and Miley Cyrus, what could we expect the result to be?

            It will take another Great Depression and possibly war to teach the young to grow up.

          • J. C.

            In the Jim Carrey movie, “The Number 23”, 23 had an ‘evil’ significance. Coincidence??? Probably… But it sure would explain a lot. 😉

        The difference between first place and second place in most elections is less than the proportion of voters who are PMSing on election day.

    • BillyHW

      I thought it was at least 51%.

  • Xavier

    I wish they asked how many American trust Obama on the Iran Nuclear Deal. Probably 23%.

  • disqus_W6sfZCiOd8

    I am thankful that more than 30% of the USA population is sane.

    • Xavier

      I am too, but the sane ones are mostly apathetic.

  • Billy Bob Thornton

    Well they say a lie told many times does become truth and that is why the media should just stop lying because quite frankly there is no proof of Iran even wanting a nuclear weapons program. Of course the threats are there but the fact is based on the Shah replacing a democratically elected government one has to wonder how we would feel. The US should just stop attacking other nations and should focus on its domestic policy.

      He who knows what isn’t so.


  • bob e

    i’m sure the same figures could not find iran on a map ..

  • Canadian

    Would you buy a used car from that smiling face?

    Americans are idiots, Iran is the one that is being honest. It’s Buckwheat Lurch and the state department that are lying. Iran is being totally honest and you can trust them to do exactly what the west doesn’t want them to do, Buckwheat and Lurch can’t be trusted to do their job and defend America.
