Americans back a newly brokered nuclear deal with Iran by a 2-to-1 margin and are very wary of the United States resorting to military action against Tehran even if the historic diplomatic effort falls through, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Tuesday.

The findings were rare good news in the polls for President Barack Obama, whose approval ratings have dropped in recent weeks because of the botched rollout of his signature healthcare reform law.

According to the Reuters/Ipsos survey, 44 percent of Americans support the interim deal reached between Iran and six world powers in Geneva last weekend, and 22 percent oppose it.

While indicating little trust among Americans toward Iranian intentions, the survey also underscored a strong desire to avoid new U.S. military entanglements after long, costly wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

So, the President has managed to help Libya oust Gaddafi without a major U.S. ground presence, managed to at least cause Syria to pause in its use of chemical weapons, and now has reached a tentative deal with Iran when many insisted that war was the only option. No wonder Republicans think that the President's foreign policy is horrible. If we had a President Romney backed by Netenyahu's puppet master, Sheldon Adelson, we probably would be readying for a war with Iran.
