A new nationwide survey reveals opposition to an agreement reached with Iran to limit the Islamic regime's nuclear weapons capabilities.

Among the key findings: 80 percent oppose giving Iran $150 billion in early sanctions absent congressional approval of the deal; 72 percent said that Congress shouldn't approve an agreement that does not allow independent U.S. inspections of Iran's military laboratories; 68 percent don't believe that inspections overseen by the United Nations that allow up to a 24-day notification period before will prevent Iran from cheating; 65 percent think the deal will result in other nations seeking their own nuclear weapons to protect themselves from Iran; and 63 percent disagree that the deal stops Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

"It's abundantly clear that the more Americans learn about key details within the Iran agreement, the less they like it," said Pat Caddell, a Democratic pollster who conducted the poll, along with the Republican firm McLaughlin & Associates. "Opposition to the deal is growing as the facts work their way into kitchen table conversations across the country."

The poll was conducted by McLaughlin & Associates and Caddell Associates for Secure America Now, a group that bills itself as a nonpartisan organization focused on security issues. It surveyed 800 likely general election voters July 22-23 and had an error margin of 3.5 percentage points, although some message testing questions had an error margin of 4.9 percentage points. Polls gauging American voters' opinions of the Iran deal have varied, with some showing support and others showing opposition.

It can be difficult to properly assess voter sentiment concerning issues of this complexity. Following is an example of one of the questions asked in this survey:

"All things being equal with which position do you agree with more? President Obama who says that the proposed deal with Iran on nuclear weapons is a good deal. It has unprecedented verification and unprecedented access to Iran's nuclear sites. It limits Iran's nuclear program and extends their breakout time to develop a nuclear weapon to one year. The opponents of the deal who say that it's a bad deal because it gives Iran a $150 billion windfall in immediate sanctions relief, ends their arms embargo and it leaves Iran's nuclear infrastructure intact. The agreement is similar to the one North Korea violated to build nuclear weapons. Iran can continue to support wars of aggression against their neighbors and terrorism against Israel and the United States."

In answer to this question, 54 percent said they agreed with opponents of the deal, while 31 percent sided with Obama.
