Part of the Obama Administration's modus operandi in the lead up to -- and aftermath -- of its one-sided deal with Cuba's dictatorship was to lay a trail of low information push-polls.
This isn't unique to Cuba -- we are all aware of Jonathan Gruber's revelations of how they sought to manipulate public opinion on Obamacare.
Of course, as has been documented, the more people know about Cuba's realities, the more they oppose Obama's policy.
And now, here come's Iran.
It's a three-step tango:
Fist, purport the American people "support" an Iran deal and don't want Congress to block it:
"Americans mostly approve of the outline of the Iran nuclear deal and don't want Congress to block it, according to a poll released Friday. The survey by Hart Research on behalf of the Democratically aligned Americans United for Change found that 61 percent of the country favor the deal, while 34 percent oppose it. And perhaps more importantly, 65 percent of voters don't want Congress to block the deal, compared with 30 percent who do."
Then, do a "poll" in Iran to claim overwhelming support for engagement:
"Some 57 percent of Iranians support a deal that would curtail Iran’s nuclear program for a number of years in exchange for sanctions relief, according to a new poll by the University of Tehran’s Center for Public Opinion Research (UTCPOR) and IranPoll.com, working in conjunction with the Center for International and Security Studies at Maryland (CISSM). Some 70 percent have an unfavorable view of the United States, yet overwhelming majorities support greater engagement with it in terms of trade, tourism, cultural exchanges and more."
And finally -- of course -- purport that even Jewish-Americans overwhelmingly "support" a deal:
"As President Obama presses to reach an accord with Iran on its nuclear program by the end of the month, he can count on strong support from what might seem like an unlikely segment of the population: American Jews. The survey found that 84 percent of American Jews would favor either strongly or somewhat a deal with Iran that would alleviate tough sanctions on the Iranian economy in exchange for Iran’s agreement to limit its nuclear program to civilian purposes and accept inspectors at its nuclear facilities."
Doesn't this all sound eerily familiar?
