THE LEVEL OF OPPOSITION IS TRIVIAL

A third of Republicans support Iran nuclear deal: Reuters/Ipsos poll (Reuters, 4/08/15) 

Thirty-one percent of Republicans favor a new nuclear deal with Iran, creating a challenge for their party's lawmakers who largely oppose the framework accord sealed between Tehran and world powers, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Wednesday.

Another 30 percent of Republicans oppose the pact, while 40 percent are not sure, according to the poll, which revealed a sharp split in the party as its leaders ramp up opposition to the deal championed by President Barack Obama, a Democrat.[...]

 Though 50 percent of Democrats supported it, 10 percent were opposed and 39 percent were not sure.

Among independents - an important constituency group for both parties ahead of the 2016 presidential election - 33 percent voiced support, 21 percent registered opposition, and 45 percent said they were unsure about the deal.
