  • Poll by World Public Opinion.org for PIPA (Sept 2006)

    "A new WPO poll of the Iraqi public finds that seven in ten Iraqis want U.S.-led forces to commit to withdraw within a year. An overwhelming majority believes that the U.S. military presence in Iraq is provoking more conflict than it is preventing and there is growing confidence in the Iraqi army. If the United States made a commitment to withdraw, a majority believes that this would strengthen the Iraqi government. Support for attacks on U.S.-led forces has grown to a majority position—now six in ten. Support appears to be related to a widespread perception, held by all ethnic groups, that the U.S. government plans to have permanent military bases in Iraq." PIPA

    Also asked about Iraqis' feelings towards Al Qaeda, Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah. Al Qaeda is looked on unfavourably by large majorities in all Iraq's ethnic groups, while the other regional actors are viewed more variably.

  • Poll for the US Department of Defense (Sept 2006)

    John Simpson for the BBC reports a US Department of Defense poll which found that about 75% of Iraq's five million Sunni Muslims now support the armed insurgency against the coalition.

    This compares with 14% in the first opinion poll the Defense Department in 2003. Simpson attributes much of the change to the 2004 attack on Fallujah.

  • Political views in Iraq (IRI) (Apr 2006)

    This poll found, among other results, that:

    • 53% of Iraqis think economic conditions are poor. 76% think security conditions are poor
    • 62% say Iraq is heading in the wrong direction; 30% say it is heading in the right direction
    • 53% approve of prime minister Ibrahim Jaafari, compared to 42% who disapprove
    • Just 1% trust the multinational forces to protect their personal security, compared to 43% trusting the Iraqi police and 35% trusting the Iraqi army
    • Security and infrastructure development are rated as the most important political issues

    More detail is available in the form of a powerpoint presentation

  • Poll by BBC World Service, Pipa, GlobeScan (28 Feb 2006)

    'The poll also indicates that there is a strong body of opinion in 20 of the 35 countries surveyed that believes US-led forces should withdraw from Iraq in the next few months.

    In Iraq itself, opinion is evenly divided with 49% favouring an early withdrawal and the same number wanting US-led forces to stay.

    However, in terms of global opinion, the picture changes sharply if the Iraqi government asks the troops to stay.'

    • "Though the Bush administration has framed the intervention in Iraq as a means of fighting terrorism, all around the world - including in the US - most people view it as having increased the likelihood of terrorist attacks," Pipa director Steven Kull notes. "The near-unanimity of this assessment among countries is remarkable in global public opinion polling."

This number divides evenly between 35% who favor a short time frame of “within six months” and 35% who favor a gradual reduction over two years.

An extraordinary 88% of Sunnis approve, with 77% approving strongly. Forty-one percent of Shia approve as well, but just 9% strongly. Even 16% of Kurds approve (8% strongly).

  • Poll by Oxford Research International (12 Dec 2005)

    Conducted for ABC News, Time magazine, the BBC NHK and Der Spiegel by Oxford Research International. Interviews were conducted Oct. 8 to Nov. 22, 2005, in person, in Arabic and Kurdish, among a random national sample of 1,711 Iraqis age 15 and up. The results have a 2.5-point error margin. (See details of the survey methodology )

    Full results are available from ABC News and BBC

    Results were consistent with previous ORI polls, but were widely interpreted as showing greater optimism about current and future conditions than previous polls.

    Interviewers found that 71% of those questioned said things were currently very or quite good in their personal lives, while 29% found their lives very or quite bad.

    However, Iraqis appear to have a more negative view of the overall situation in their country, with 53% answering that the situation is bad, and 44% saying it is good.

    Preference for strong leadership was strong: half of those questioned felt Iraq needed a single, strong leader following December's elections, but this fell to 31% in 5 years time.

    Also, 50.3 per cent of Iraqis polled answered that the 2003 invasion was somewhat or absolutely wrong. That’s an increase from 39.1 per cent in a similar survey in March 2004
