2010 Arab Public Opinion Poll

Wikispooks Comment

You will struggle to find any reference to this poll in the Western MSM. It's findings are emphatically NOT in accordance with "The Official Narrative" and thus, in spite of its authoritative nature, its findings are obfuscated, minimised or simply ignored.

File Description

Survey conducted June 29 -July 20, 2010
in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, and UAE

Sample size: 3,976
Margin of error: +/ +/- 1.6%

Key Poll Findings


Among the key poll findings are:

  • A substantial change in the assessment of President Obama, both as President of the United States and of Obama personally.
  • Remarkably stable views on the Arab-Israeli conflict and the prospects of its resolution
  • A majority of the Arab public now see a nuclear-armed Iran as being better for the Middle East

Attitudes toward President Obama

Among the most striking findings on the question of attitudes toward President Obama: Early in the Obama administration, in April and May 2009, 51% of the respondents in the six countries expressed optimism about American policy in the Middle East. In the 2010 poll, only 16% were hopeful, while a majority - 63% - was discouraged.

Attitudes toward Iran


On Iran's potential nuclear weapons status, results show another dramatic shift in public opinion. While the results vary from country to country, the weighted average across the six countries is telling: in 2009, only 29% of those polled said that Iran's acquisition of nuclear weapons would be "positive" for the Middle East; in 2010, 57% of those polled indicate that such an outcome would be "positive" for the Middle East.
