  • The poll of Iraqis regarding issues...

    Hello,

    I'd thought I would set aside my ardent nationalism, and cut to the point.

    Here's the poll of Iraqis regarding different issues.

    Be warned, this is only one poll I've found so far, and it was given in another forum (a liberal forum, mind you). It is from BBC, so I don't know if the American polling companies have done some in Iraq.

    I believe ultimately that this poll is still a bit tricky and missing some key questions, so this doesn't really reflect the entire Iraqi population's opinions. In any case, the Iraqis are the most important people in any re-building of Iraq even as Coalition members still remain there for at least a while.

    Let's read what Iraqis themselves really want to say...

    Thanks Cheetah! Very good poll! And I know everyone can find facts for his theory in a statistic, but one question is very interesting to me:
    -around 57% says they have better life than under Saddam.
    (and see how they think of the war...)

        Hi Dan,

        A very interesting poll. Thanks to have posted it
        A first look, the most important for Iraquis, is Security and Jobs.
        The coalition is not seen too bad.
        For question 29 the coalition forces are requested to stay until security or Iraquis governement in place for 54% of polled people, not too bad too.

        One thing I don't like in it is the answer to question 24 at least 60% of people refused to answer or don't know.

        Thanks again comrad Capitalist

          I see that "democracy" is popular, but what sort of democracy? Russian? American? Spanish?

            Interesting poll. This is quite indepth. The Iraq Center for Research and Strategic Studies have produced several polls.

            August-September 2003

            September-October 2003

            You can also find polls at the Coalition Provisional Authority Website here. I'll leave it up to you to decide whether you believe results or not.

            Tip: As a rule of thumb, bear in mind the more formal education an Iraqi has, the less likely he or she is to support an Islamic government. Instead, they will favor somekind of democracy or monarchy constitution (basically the kind of government Britian installed before it withdrew in about 75 or 80yrs ago.)

              Iraqis tend to favor a Parlimentary Democracy. One of the best analysis of this system (brief and to the point) can be found at Australia's Parlimentary Library. It covers both the move toward this form of democracy, and federalism. The issue of federalism has been a source of intense debate in Iraq.

                Be careful, the question 29 was asked only who mentioned the coalition, so not the whole polled men... (if I am right)

                  The poll looks about right.
