US Polls on Iran Nuclear Deal

Nearly two-thirds of Americans support an agreement with Iran that would lift sanctions in return for Tehran restricting its nuclear program, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. Some 72 percent of Democrats surveyed support such a deal compared with 57 percent of Republicans. But only 36 percent of all participants are confident that such a deal would prevent Iran from attaining nuclear weapons. The poll was conducted between November 14 and 17 on the eve of new talks between Iran and the world’s six major powers.
A CNN/ORC International poll also found that 56 percent of Americans support an interim deal. The results also indicated a partisan divide, with about two-thirds of Democrats supporting a deal. Only about 45 percent of Republicans were in favor of one. The following are excerpts from both surveys. 

The Washington Post/ABC News

Question: Thinking now about the situation with Iran, would you support or oppose an agreement in which the United States and other countries would lift some of their economic sanctions against Iran, in exchange for Iran restricting its nuclear program in a way that makes it harder for it to produce nuclear weapons?

Iranian Conservative Bloggers: A New Year, an Election, and a Death

The western media tells us that all Iranian conservatives think the same, but this is far from the reality. There is an immense diversity of opinion amongst pro-government Iranians, and these monthly reports analyse the disparity between conservative opinion blogs in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

  1.  

    A New Year

    The month of Esfand was the final month of the Iranian year 1391, and many conservative bloggers commemorated the passage to 1392 by reviewing the events of the previous year.

    On the blog Yadnameh (Memoir), Mohammad Hasan Roozitalab wrote that he does not foresee the coming year to be good because of the conflict between the government and the parliament, now known as Black Sunday.

  2. Majd el din Moalemi, on his blog 3 Alef, listed the most prominent political figures of 1391 as: Ayatollah Khamenei, the Supreme Leader; Saeed Jalili, the Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council; and Bashar Assad, the besieged president of Syria. Moalemi thought that the most ridiculous act of 1391 was the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to the European Union.

  3. Moalemi also went on to list the most ‘unfortunate’ politicians of the year. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Larijani brothers and Hugo Chavez topped this list, with Hugo Chavez being named the saddest death of the year. In another post, Moalemi predicted that 1392 will mark the marginalisation of Iran’s nuclear programme and the lifting of international sanctions against Iran.

  4. Vahid Yaminpour, a former presenter at the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting, in post entitled “The 1391 Memoirs: the good, the bad and the ugly”, described the Black Sunday conflict as the worst event of the year and Argo’s win of the Academy Award as the most shameful.
