Hey, Obama, try listening to the people who gave you your job for once.

Most Americans don’t trust that Iran will abide by an eventual agreement to curtail its nuclear program and not develop an atomic weapon, according to an NBC News poll released on Thursday.

More than half the respondents in the poll said that Iran’s nuclear program represents a major threat to the United States.

The poll found that 68 percent of respondents believed that Iran was either not too likely or not at all likely to abide by a nuclear agreement, compared with 25 percent who said Iran was very likely or somewhat likely.

The poll, conducted by NBC News and SurveyMonkey, was conducted Monday through Wednesday, just days after diplomats working around the clock agreed on a framework for an eventual deal.

Six world powers negotiated with Iran on the framework. The details must still be worked out before a June 30 deadline.

The two sides have offered differing interpretations of the framework itself. But it generally calls for restrictions on the nuclear program and for international inspections, in exchange for relief on economic sanctions against Iran.

In the poll, 68 percent of respondents said it was either not too likely or not at all likely that Iran would follow the rules of a nuclear agreement, compared with 25 percent who said it was either very likely or somewhat likely.

Slightly more than half, 53 percent, said the Iranian nuclear program represents a major threat to the United States. That compared with 37 percent who said it was a minor threat, and 8 percent who said it was not a threat.
