Voters Say Obama Needs Congress' OK for Iran Deal

The Obama administration has reportedly secured enough votes in Congress to override a congressional challenge of its deal over Iran’s nuclear program. But most voters still think Congress needs to approve the deal, and many want their congressional representatives to reject it.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 66% of Likely U.S. Voters believe any agreement the administration makes with Iran regarding the Iranian nuclear program requires the approval of Congress. That's nearly unchanged from July just after the deal was announced. Only 20% do not think the deal requires congressional approval, but another 14% are not sure.
