85% of Iranians critical of US government: Poll

IRNA – Eighty-five percent of Iranians are against the US approach towards Iran, a recent poll has found.

The survey conducted a week after the recent unrests across Iran by the Center for International and Security Studies at Maryland (CISSM) and IranPoll, suggested that 85 percent of Iranians have a very unfavorable opinion of President Donald Trump’s administration with most respondents saying Trump’s comments in support of protesters didn’t help.

Results of the poll released on Friday, also found comparatively little support for changing Iran’s political system or relaxing strict Islamic law and that criticism of Iranian foreign policy in Syria and Iraq was not as widely shared by the general population in the country.

Telephone interviews of 1,002 Iranians were done January 16–24, 2018.

The margin of error was +/- 3.1 percent.
