Survey suggests 75 percent of U.S. unclear on purpose of Iran nuclear deal

A recent survey from iMediaEthics.org found that three-fourths of U.S. citizens are unclear on the purpose of the recent international nuclear deal with Iran, iMediaEthics.org said on Monday.

The poll acted as a test on the validity of other polls conducted by media outlets. The poll was conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates International earlier this month in partnership with the website. The report said the Princeton survey contradicts surveys conducted by CBS News, the Washington Post, ABC News and the Pew Research Center.

The Princeton poll found that only one-third of respondents had an opinion on whether Congress should vote to approve or deny the agreement.

Of those respondents not given supplemental information, only 25 percent were able to identify the purpose of the Iran nuclear deal.


This poll from iMediaEthics poll utilized information sharing for 50 percent of respondents, and those who were informed on the issue posted similar results to other outlets.

 David Moore, polling director for the website, said that once information on the issue is shared with respondents, they no longer represent the general public.
