New poll shows massive support for the Islamic Republic

Recommended Posts

A survey has been published which shows massive support for Khamenei and Ahmadinejad.

 

http://www.worldpublicopinion.org/pipa/pdf/sep09/IranUS_Sep09_quaire.pdf

 

Among its findings.

 

1) 81% of Iranians regard Ahmadi to be their legitimate President

 

2) 76% backed Khamenei's decision to stand by the election result

 

3) 87% express strong or some support for the Islamic Republic

 

A previous poll had shown strong opposition to the monarchy and Reza Pahlavi.

 

I think this shows just how delusional many Iranian expatriates living in the United States are. Iran is a traditional, Muslim country - maybe Shemiranat is close to your gharbzadeh vision, but not Qom, Kerman, Semnan, Zanjan etc.

 

So, my advice to you is to accept this fact and forget about Iran. If you are a citizen of the US, just be that. You don't have to forgo your heritage, but please don't try and interfere with the Iranian nation which you have chosen to separate yourself from...OK?

* A total of 1,003 interviews were completed; the interview refusal rate was 52 percent.

* …one in four respondents refused to answer the question about who they voted for in the presidential election…

* …Asked how they would vote if the election were held again, half say they would vote for Ahmadinejad….

Thanks, but refusal rates are to be expected....I know I would have hung up on an American research company!

 

One in four did not state who they voted for but 55% said they voted for Ahmadi compared to 14% for Mousavi. Also 64% express strong support for the President which implies they voted for him (and its very

close to the 62-63% share of the vote that he received).

 

The fact that some people who voted for Ahmadinejad may reconsider if a rerun were held does show that the poll is authentic as I know some people who were dismayed by the crackdown....not many though.

 

In any case, the Iranian people seem to support the IR even though they indicate that its not the most perfect system in the world.
