AAI President and Zogby Research Services Founder, Dr. James Zogby to present findings on Monday, June 17 at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace

Washington, DC - 6/13/2013 - Between April 4th and May 12th, 2013, Zogby Research Services (ZRS) conducted a face-to-face poll of 5,029 Egyptian adults nationwide on attitudes toward Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood. Dr. James Zogby, Arab American Institute President and founder of Zogby Research Services will release the survey next Monday, June 17 during a briefing organized by the Middle East Institute (MEI) at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington, DC.

The ZRS poll addresses:

  • Overall Egyptian attitudes toward President Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood
  • Egyptian confidence in the country’s institutions and views on the credibility of past and present leaders
  • Whether Egyptians retain the hope they had at the beginning of the Arab Spring
  • Given available options, how Egyptians see the way forward

“What emerges from the findings is a portrait of a deeply fractured country in which a substantial majority of the electorate is dissatisfied with the performance of the government and losing confidence in the hope of change,” said Zogby. “At the same time, the ZRS poll establishes that while the government has lost support, its opposition is divided and is seen as lacking clear leadership.”

In addition to Zogby, panelists include: Steve Clemons of The Atlantic and the New America Foundation, MEI Scholar Amb. Edward Walker, and
Kate Seelye, senior vice president of the Middle East Institute.

AAI maintains an extensive and comprehensive archive of Zogby Research Services and Zogby International polls on Arab, Arab American, and U.S. opinion covering a wide range of issues, including US attitudes toward Egypt.
