A recent survey of 1,000 likely American voters showed 66 percent think Iran is unlikely to slow or stop its nuclear program.
The survey also indicated 25 percent think it is at least somewhat likely that Iran will slow or stop its nuclear program in the next year in exchange for the lifting of international sanctions, including 4 percent who say Iran is very likely to slow or stop its nuclear efforts in exchange for the lifting of sanctions. Out of the 66 percent who think it’s unlikely and 23 percent said they think it is “not at all likely.”
Only 27 percent think the United States should engage in one-on-one negotiations with Iran, while 58 percent think talks with Iran should continue to be conducted through an international coalition of nations and 15 percent are not sure.
Twenty-nine percent think the United States should use military force to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons if diplomatic efforts fail to prevent the Middle Eastern nation from continuing to develop its nuclear capabilities, down nine points from a high of 38 percent in November 2011, while 45 percent are opposed to U.S. military action against Iran, up from 35 percent two years ago, and 26 percent remain undecided.
