( A majority of Americans want Congress to reject the Iran nuclear deal, a new survey has found. 

According to a CNN/ORC poll—which interviewed 1,017 adults from July 22-25—52 percent of Americans believe Congress should reject the agreement, including 66 percent of Republicans and 55 percent of Independents. Furthermore, 56 percent of respondents age 35 or older said the deal should be nixed. Meanwhile, a majority of Democrats, young adults, and those with college degrees all supported Congress approving the deal. 

After the deal was reached July 14, Congress began a 60-day period during which it can review the agreement. Congress can approve, disapprove, or take no action on the deal. President Barack Obama has vowed to veto any disapproval of the deal.
