Some poll indicators

“The Angry Arab News Service” highlights a public opinion poll on leaders in Lebanon, with Nobody at 27.1 %, Hassan Nasrallah at 12%, Michel Aoun at 11.3%, Saad Hariri at 9.7%, Nabih Berri at 10.2 %, Michel Sleiman at 9.4%, Samir Geagea at 3.2, and Walid Jumblat at 2.9%.. Interesting that all of them except Berri (and Sleiman who did not figure in the earlier poll) have lost popularity from the previous poll in February 2006.

A public opinion poll conducted by the University of Maryland in conjunction with Zogby International in six countries (Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Morocco, Lebanon, and Jordan) asked questions re Iraq, Iran, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Lebanon, attitudes towards the United States, and which media they followed…

Of interest is that the most popular aspect of al-Qaeda is not its actions or even its ideology, but the mere fact that it is a force in opposition to the United States.
