Half Think New Iran Sanctions Will Be Effective in Renegotiating Nuclear Deal

The Trump administration announced this week that it will re-impose trade sanctions on Iran that had been previously suspended under the 2015 nuclear agreement, and voters are cautiously optimistic that they will be effective in getting Iran to renegotiate the agreement.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters think these new sanctions will be at least somewhat effective in getting Iran to renegotiate the 2015 nuclear agreement made under President Obama. Another 40%, though, do not think the sanctions will be effective. This includes 22% who think they will be Very Effective in spurring renegotiations and 19% who think they won’t be At All Effective. Another 10% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
