New BBC Poll: Iran Unloved, But Not Isolated

March 8th, 2011 | by Marsha B. Cohen

BBC poll data indicates that 25% percent of Egyptian respondents view Iran favorably, nearly the same number as view U.S. influence as positive (26%). Nearly equal numbers of Turkish respondents approve of the influence of the U.S. (35%) and Iran (36%). Half of those polled, in countries long regarded as the staunchest Middle East allies of both the U.S. and of Israel--50% in Egypt, 49% in Turkey-- expressed negativity about U.S. influence, with only 32% of Egyptians and 45% of Turks worried about Iran.
