Majority of Iranians now want to quit nuclear deal

A new poll shows that Iranian public support has decreased significantly for the JCPOA, and three-quarters of those polled indicate that they only support restarting negotiations with the United States if sanctions are lifted first.

A majority of Iranians no longer supports the 2015 nuclear deal, thinks their country should withdraw and believes that the United States has done the maximum damage it can inflict on the Iranian economy.

The findings are from a series of new polls of Iranian public opinion conducted by the Center for International and Security Studies at Maryland and IranPoll, a Toronto-based body, which have done numerous similar studies in the past. Interviews of about 1,000 people were conducted by telephone in April, May, late August and early October with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points for each.
