(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) Fifty-seven percent of Americans disapprove of the job President Barack Obama is doing on Iran, with 32 percent approving, according to a new Fox News poll.

Fifty-one percent of respondents said Obama is “being too soft” in the nuclear negotiations with Iran, while 34 percent believe he is “striking the right balance.” Only 2 percent said Obama is “being too tough” with Iran. Sixty-five percent said they believe Iran poses a real threat to national security, and 50 percent believe that negotiating with the Islamic Republic is the wrong thing to do, saying Iran cannot be trusted to honor any agreement.

The Fox News poll was based on landline and cellphone interviews with 1,012 randomly chosen registered voters across the U.S.
