Iraq Poll 2003


The population in 41 countries think military action is likely to be launched against Iraq in the next few months. But half of this population is not in favour of military action under any circumstances.

Between 80 and 90% of the citizens in the 41 countries think that military action is likely to be launched against Iraq in the next few months. Approximately four out of ten interviewees in the Gallup International Iraq Poll 2003, held among 30,000 citizens of 41 different countries, consider military action against Iraq in the coming few months very likely.

The survey results show that approximately half of the citizens in the world are not in favour of military action against Iraq under any circumstances. The Argentines feel strongest (83%) against military action. A large percentage of the Spanish and the French feel the same way (74% and 60% respectively). A marked one out of five Americans (21%) is in favour of military action under no circumstances. In general, a war against Iraq declared unilaterally by the US and its allies does not receive much public support.
