AP-GfK poll: Skeptics eye nuclear deal with Iran


WASHINGTON (AP) — A poll indicates a majority of Americans support an agreement by the U.S. and five other world powers to limit Iran's nuclear program, but don't believe it will keep Tehran from building a nuclear bomb.

The Associated Press-GfK survey gave President Barack Obama lower marks for his dealings with Iran.

Sixty percent of adults approved of a six-month deal to ease some international sanctions against Iran. In exchange, Iran has agreed to cap its uranium enrichment program at levels far below what it would take to build a nuclear weapon.

But most people — 51 percent — think it's unlikely the agreement will stop Iran from building a weapon.

The online poll of 1,060 adults was conducted Jan. 17-21. Its margin of error is plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.
