THE DISCIPLINE OF DEMOCRACY:

Survey finds majority of Iranians would give up nuclear program (JTA, 6/08/14) 

A majority of Iranians would support dismantling their country's nuclear program in exchange for a full removal of sanctions against Iran, according to a survey by an Israeli university.

The survey of Iranian citizens, conducted in May and June by the Institute for Policy and Strategy at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya, an Israeli university, found that 54 percent of respondents would support Iran dismantling its nuclear program in exchange for world powers lifting sanctions against Iran. Forty-five percent would support removing Iran's capability to produce nuclear weapons in the future in exchange for lifting sanctions.

Iran is currently in talks with world powers, including the United States, to scale back its nuclear program in exchange for a lifting of sanctions.
