CNN Poll: Most in U.S. favor negotiations with Iran over nukes

Wasshington (CNN) - Three-quarters of Americans say they favor direct diplomatic negotiations with Iran in an attempt to prevent that country from developing nuclear weapons, according to a new national poll.

Just one in five questioned in a CNN/ORC International survey released Monday morning say they opposed negotiations with Tehran.

    This dude appears to be trustworthy. Just negotiate. But our visa system got to be tightened.

    That one in five who are opposed are probably the war mongers who would prefer a war with Iran, instead of talks.

    Majority of Americans believe in diplomacy over war. After that a #43 lied us into a war, we must pay close attention to what politicians are selling us when they intend to use force.

    Did they ask if Obama or Rouhani were "acting like spoiled children"?

    87% Dems. v. 68% Repubs. favor diplomacy. How many of the 32% Repubs. would send their Grandkids to War or agree to pay higher taxes to support war ?

    I think we should negoitate with Rhouhani....Certainly he comes to the table willing to talk, unlike our domestically grown terrorists; the GOP/Tea Baggers who have strapped bombs to their chest in a quest to destroy the country in a death wish......Good luck with that

    This is the first sign of a peaceful solution to virtually anything in the Middle East since about 1990, and with Iran since 1979. It stands to reason that most in America (well except the Right), want to try diplomacy and negotiation rather than open conflict. Millions stand to benefit from such arrangements from all across the region.

    If it can be verified by multiple sources that the Iranians are actually not doing any weapons research and only have been doing civilian power generation research, then I might be inclinded to suggest that sanctions be reduced. There is too much to verify and a lot for the Iranians to prove to make me trust them at all.
