Outside of people who object to Iran deal do to political reasons or just confusion their really is not logical reason not support it. The other option would be a war that would have no global support, shut down the mid east oil, send gas to $5 a gallon, cost thousands of lives including Americans, and leave the mid east destabilized from the Mediterranean to China, remove on ISIS main adversaries, and possibly result in a nuclear exchange.
With the treaty Iran faces hundreds of inspectors on the ground, sensors and cameras and the enforcement of the entire planet. Iranian harder liners hate it because they also know it will mean the end of Iran's ruling party. And if Iran fails to come through the US then has the entire backing of the rest of the world. Where as the US refusing the deal would simply lead to the rest of the world blaming the US and ending sanctions on Iran anyway.
People seem to be under the illusion that is just a deal between the US and Iran. It is not. If the US walks out of the deal the other World powers will not, sanctions will be lifted if the US signs on or not. Failure to sign removes any credibility the US would have in trying to punish Iran alone. Anything it tried would be blocked by the rest of the world. Luckily the people who know about such things have spoken in support of the deal including retired US Generals and Admirals, a Dozen former Israeli Generals and Admirals, the nations top scientists, the former head of the Mossad, the independent non proliferation organizations and 100 nations.

I think if Iran truly wants nuclear weapons they will build them regardless of any deal and if they don't want them they won't build them regardless of any deal.
