Between September 17 and October 10, 2016, Zogby Research Services (ZRS) conducted face-to-face personal interviews in eight countries (Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Iraq, Turkey, and Iran). A total of 7,173 adults were surveyed on their attitudes toward important countries that are playing critical roles in the Middle East, and the obstacles to peace and stability, the sources of conflict, and causes of extremism in the region. We also surveyed Iranian’s satisfaction with their government’s performance on a range of domestic and foreign policies. Because, in the past few years, ZRS has conducted similar polls in these same countries, we were able to measure changes in attitudes, where they occurred.
