A majority of Americans say that they support limiting Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for loosening sanctions on the Persian nation, a new Washington Post-ABC News poll said.

The poll, though, also showed that a majority of Americans are not confident that sort of deal would stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

The survey showed that 59 percent of voters support — compared to 31 percent that oppose — an agreement “in which the United States and other countries would lift major economic sanctions against Iran, in exchange for restricting its nuclear program in a way that makes it harder for it to produce nuclear weapons.”

There is a partisan split on the issue, with 68 percent of Democrats and 60 percent of independents backing a deal, compared to 47 percent of Republicans.

The survey also showed 59 percent are not confident in the deal to stop Iran’s pursuit of a nuclear weapon, compared to 37 percent who are very or somewhat confident.
