The majority of Americans want Congress to refrain from imposing new economic sanctions on Iran over the next six months, a poll conducted by Hart Research for the advocacy group Americans United for Change found, the Los Angeles Times reported on Tuesday.

Sixty-seven percent said they would prefer giving the interim deal signed in Geneva between Tehran and world powers a chance, while 25% disagreed.

The poll also found 34% of respondents supported the interim deal, while 22% opposed and 41% had no opinion.

After a sample group was read a description of the deal, 63% favored it and only 24% were opposed.
