Wide majorities in three key swing states oppose the Iran nuclear deal, according to the results of the latest Quinnipiac University poll released Monday.

In Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, voters rejected the deal announced between Iran and six world powers last month and also said the agreement would make the world less safe, not safer. Story Continued Below Florida voters opposed the nuclear deal 61 percent to 25 percent, while 61 percent to 27 percent said it would make the world less safe. In Ohio, 58 percent opposed the deal, compared with 24 percent who support it.

Additionally, 56 percent to 26 percent think the deal would lead to a less safe world. Among Pennsylvania voters, 61 percent opposed the agreement, while 26 percent supported it, while 60 percent to 27 percent said the agreement would make the world less safe.

56 percent to 26 percent think the deal would lead to a less safe world.

The results come weeks before Congress is set to take up debate on the agreement, with a vote set for no later than Sept. 17. Key Democrats have endorsed the deal in recent days, including red-state Democrats like Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill and Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid announced his support for the deal on Sunday.

The survey also asked the swing-state voters about other hot-button issues, such as abortion, the federal funding of Planned Parenthood, immigration, environmental efforts and whether to send ground troops to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. (Strong majorities in all three states said the U.S. and its allies are losing the fight against the terrorist group.)

The polls were conducted Aug. 7-18 via landline and cellphone, surveying 1,093 voters in Florida, 1,096 voters in Ohio and 1,085 voters in Pennsylvania. The margins of error in all three states is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
