Iraqi Poll on Elections

| | Comments (0)

Powerline posts the results of a poll in Iraq about the elections, showing that they overwhelmingly support them. There are a couple false statements, one showing great ignorance to the effect that Israel is the only country Arabs have voted in (which ignores at least 3-4 countries in the Middle East, not to mention all the countries in Europe, North America, and probably elsewhere in which Arabs are citizens who vote all the time!) Still, the poll itself is an interesting set of information. I'm sure there could be reasons to suspect the sample or the polling methods and all that, but if you listen to some people you'll get the impression that Iraqis don't themselves feel ready for or welcoming of the democratic process. Even if the poll is somewhat suspect, the numbers are so strong in favor of the elections that all that a priori reasoning about what Iraqi views must be just can't be right.
