The more Senate Democrats climb on board Obama’s nuclear bandwagon, the more radioactive the deal becomes to Americans.
Democrats who want a future for their party ought to be looking at poll numbers and putting country first instead of following the leader. The Iran Deal numbers have consistently been getting worse. You won’t hear it from the media’s cheering sections, but the left has lost this debate. It just happens to have turned the White House into a unilateral banana republic.
And too few Senate Democrats chose to follow Menendez, Webb, Schumer and Cardin by turning down the deal.
Only 1 in 5 Americans now support the deal. Disapproval has increased by 4 percent since July. It’s now at 49 percent. But, even more devastatingly, approval sank from 33 to 21 percent. These are the people who know the deal is wrong, but won’t stand up and say so.
Democratic support has dropped from 50 to 42 percent. But Dem opposition has only increased by 2 percent. The number of Democrats who don’t know has climbed from 22 to 29 percent.
Independents now oppose the deal 47 to 20 percent.
Only 16 percent of Democrats express a great deal of confidence in the ability of the US and international agencies to monitor Iran’s compliance.
Women now disapprove of the agreement 47 to 16 percent. College grads used to narrowly approve of the Iran deal. They now disapprove.
The American people don’t want this deal. They don’t support this deal. 41 Democratic Senators have betrayed their country and their constituents by putting party loyalty over country.
