By a 2-to-1 margin, Americans support the recently struck deal to halt Iran's nuclear program, according to an online poll released on Tuesday.

The latest Reuters/Ipsos survey showed a plurality of 44 percent supports the deal brokered between Iran and six world powers while 22 percent said they are opposed.

The interim deal, which was reached on Saturday, calls for Iran to freeze its nuclear program for six months in exchange for relief from sanctions. If the deal is honored, the sides will negotiate a long-term agreement to ensure that Iran does not produce nuclear weapons.

In the event that the deal fails, the poll showed that 49 percent of Americans want the U.S. to increase sanctions while 31 percent want more diplomacy. A mere 20 percent said they want the U.S. to use military force against Iran.
