Note to Media: Americans Back Iran Deal

You'd never know it from media, which have highlighted opposition to the Teheran nuclear deal, but polls have shown Americans solidly behind it.  Latest from Reuters-Ipsos shows not only they back it by 2-1 but also are wary of taking military action even if it falls through.

The survey's results suggest that a U.S. public weary of war could help bolster Obama's push to keep Congress from approving new sanctions that would complicate the next round of negotiations for a final agreement with Iran.

"This absolutely speaks to war fatigue, where the American appetite for intervention - anywhere - is extremely low," Ipsos pollster Julia Clark said. "It could provide some support with Congress for the arguments being made by the administration."
