Similarly, 53 percent of Jewish Americans polled want Congress to allow the deal to go ahead, while 35 percent want Congress to stop the deal. Among all Americans, the numbers are 41 percent wanting Congress to allow the deal and 38 percent supporting Congress should it kill the deal.

Congress has two months to consider whether to exercise its power to disapprove of the sanctions relief for nuclear restrictions deal reached July 14 between Iran and the major powers, including the United States.

The poll by SSRS was conducted by phone between July 16 and July 20. It canvassed 505 non-Jews and 501 Jews. SSRS did not give a margin of error.
