CLINTON CAN’T WALK AWAY FROM THE UNPOPULARITY OF THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL

- September 16, 2015

On The Campaign Trail, Clinton Has Reiterated Her Support For The Iran Nuclear Deal. "In a speech to a Washington think tank, the former secretary of state reiterated her support for the accord but cautioned that she would take an approach of "distrust and verify" toward Iran if she won the November, 2016 presidential election." (Alistair Bell and Arshad Mohammed, "I Won't Shrink From Military Action Against Iran If Needed: Clinton," Reuters, 9/9/15)

The Daily Beast 's Jackie Kucinich: The Unpopularity Of The Iran Nuclear Deal "Really Seems To Be" A Problem For Democrats And Clinton Is "Very Tied To This." DIAZ-BALART: "Let's talk a little about this national Quinnipiac poll that was released this morning. 55 percent of the people that were polled opposed the Iran deal and 56 percent say will make the U.S. less safe. Hillary Clinton is set to give a backing of the deal next week. Is this something that is going to cause problems for the democrats?" KUCINICH: "It really seems to be. Hillary Clinton is very closely tied to this Iran agreement, of course, because her top adviser Jake Sullivan was a part at the beginning of it. She is very tied to this." (MSNBC's "The Rundown With Jose Diaz-Balart," 8/31/15)

On The "Controversial Nuclear Deal," "Clinton Is Stuck With The Results And Their Political Complications." "The outcome, though, is a controversial deal that is staunchly opposed by Republicans, the Israeli political establishment and their supporters in the United States. A Pew Research poll last week showed 48% of Americans opposing the deal, compared with just 38% in favor. Even some Democrats are questioning the merits of the deal sought so aggressively by their party's president. Clinton is stuck with the results and their political complications." (Jeremy Diamond, "Hillary Clinton Can't Escape Iran Deal In Presidential Run," CNN, 7/28/15)

"Anyway You Slice It, It Is Difficult To Support The Claim That There Is 'Strong Support' For The Iran Deal Among Lawmakers And Citizens.

(Glenn Kessler, "Obama's Claim That The Iran Deal Has 'Strong Support' From Lawmakers And Citizens," The Washington Post , 9/14/15)

Council On Foreign Relations' Richard Haass: The Hope That The Deal Will Transform Iran Is "A Wild Hope." HAASS: "I think what it underscores Joe is the hopes that this somehow this agreement will be quote unquote transformational, and lead Iran to be closer to Switzerland is just that a wild hope, it can't be serious thinking or analysis or strategy." (MSNBC's " Morning Joe," 7/21/15)
