New Post-Morsi Poll Shows Egyptian Attitudes toward US Continue to Decline

Posted by on August 30, 2013 in Blog
Though news of unrest from Egypt has been eclipsed by events in Syria, Egypt remains a vitally important country. As the largest Arab state, the attitudes of Egyptians count, especially as the US potentially deepens its role in the region. A new Zogby Research poll on Egyptian Attitudes in the Post-Tamarrud, Post-Morsi Era, conducted in the second half of July 2013, shows that favorable ratings toward the US and President Obama are at 1% and 3%, respectively.

Israeli-Palestinian Negotiations Will Require Public Support

Posted on August 05, 2013 in Washington Watch
There are plenty of reasons to be cynical about U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's relaunch of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. The personalities and the politics involved do not immediately inspire confidence. Nevertheless, I choose not to be negative, partly because it is always easy to sit on the sidelines and take potshots. The more important consideration is because peace is so essential to the lives and futures of the peoples of the region and to American interests in the Middle East, that any good faith effort deserves support and a chance to succeed.

Posted on July 24, 2013 in Reports

Between 7/12/13 and 7/13/13, Zogby Analytics conducted a survey of 1,014 US likely voters on their attitudes toward Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood.
