The International Republican institute released their latest Iraq poll a couple of days ago. It asks Iraqis their opinions on the progress being made in Iraq and their opinions on what they'd like to see in a new Government.

The number of people who think Iraq is headed in a the wrong direction has increased and a lot of people are saying that security and electricity have gotten worse since the last poll in April but many Iraqis still seem to have hope that these problems will be resolved in the not too distant future.

I'll post a couple of screen shots for those of you who don't have powerpoint.








Those last two were a little surprising because the people who thought Islam and Sharia should be the only source of law were slightly more likely to support womens rights than those who thought Islam and Sharia should only be one part of law.

Great find Ace.

This poll really shows how much damage the Insurgents have done to the Iraqis and their confidence. Its to bad these guys have been able to kill so many people and destroy so much infrastructure as to influence the entire Iraqi populace.

Thanks Ace for finding more information on the damage the Insurgents have done. Lets just hope that the USA and the new Iraqi government can turn that around.

Insurgent this insurgent that... Maybe the fact that some of these people haven't had clean water or electricity in two years could have something to do with their poor opinion of their nations direction, don't you think? Add that to threats of war on their western borders and background radiation levels far above normal, the lack of a definitive governing body and constitution, I'd say insurgents are probably not the major factor our media would lead us to believe they are in Iraqi public opinion. We blew 12 billion dollars allocated to the rebuilding of key domestic infrastructure, literally lost several billions and the other nearly half of that money was given to teh US military and the laughable Iraqi security forces.
