Senate Democrats on Thursday successfully blocked a congressional vote on a resolution rejecting President Obama’s nuclear weapons deal with Iran. Apparently it doesn’t matter that 66% of voters believe any agreement the Obama administration makes with Iran regarding the Iranian nuclear program should be approved by Congress before taking effect.
Sixty-two percent (62%) think Iran is unlikely to uphold its end of the deal that ends some economic sanctions on that country in exchange for cutbacks in the Iranian nuclear weapons program. Both these findings have held steady for several months.
Similarly, the president announced late Thursday that the United States will take in up to 10,000 Middle Eastern migrants to help alleviate the illegal immigration crisis now besetting Europe. Again, no consultation with Congress was deemed necessary even though voters by a 50% to 36% margin don’t like the idea of bringing the migrants here (14% are undecided).
