Voters Torn Over Whether Trump Too Aggressive or About Right With Iran

Following President Trump’s withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran, few voters accuse him of a lack of aggressiveness with the Iranians, and more think he’s on the right course.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 14% of Likely U.S. Voters now believe Trump is not aggressive enough in his dealings with Iran, down from 30% last September. But while 26% already felt the president was being too aggressive back then, 36% feel that way now. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
