Iran nuclear deal better for Tehran than Washington - poll
Almost half of US citizens think that Iran benefited more from the July nuclear agreement with P5+1 group of countries than the United States, according to a Monmouth University poll released on Monday, IRNA reported.
"Four-in-ten (41 percent) say Iran got more of what it wanted from this deal, while just 14 percent feel the US came out on top," the poll results read.
On July 14, Iran and the P5+1 group of countries comprising the United States, Russia, China, France and the United Kingdom plus Germany, reached a comprehensive nuclear agreement to guarantee the peaceful nature of Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
Almost 70 percent of Republicans think the deal was beneficial for Iran, while 39 percent of Democrats thought both Tehran and Washington made out on the agreement, according to the poll.
The Republican controlled Congress has until September 17 to reject the deal. US President Barack Obama has threatened to veto any resolution of disapproval from Congress. In order to block a presidential veto, both the House and Senate would have to secure a two-thirds majority vote.
The US citizens are currently divided on how Congress should vote, with 27 percent of the polled supporting approval of the deal and 32 percent saying it should be rejected.
Overall, the majority of Americans, 61 percent, do not trust Iran to abide by the nuclear deal, the poll found, sputniknews.com reported.
On Wednesday, Treasury Acting Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Adam Szubin said the United States can snap back sanction on Iran "in a matter of days," if Tehran violates the nuclear agreement.
