According to the Brookings Institution:
On Thursday, August 5, Shibley Telhami, Anwar Sadat Professor for Peace and Development at the University of Maryland and nonresident senior fellow at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy at Brookings, released the 2010 Arab Public Opinion Poll, which is produced each year in conjunction with Zogby International.
This year’s poll surveyed 3,976 people in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Jordan, Lebanon, and the United Arab Emirates, during the period of June 29–July 20, 2010.
Among the key poll findings are:
• A substantial change toward a negative assessment of President Obama, both as president of the United States and of Obama personally.
• A larger majority of the Arab public asserts Iran has a right to its nuclear program.
• A majority of the Arab public now see a potentially nuclear-armed Iran as being better for the Middle East.
