Iran is holding parliamentary (the Majlis) and Assembly of Experts elections tomorrow. In case you missed it, a University of Maryland survey of the Iranian public conducted December 2015-January 2016 found that six in ten (59 percent) Iranians said they preferred that most of the Majlis to be composed of the supporters of President Hassan Rouhani—25 percent preferred that critics of Rouhani win the majority of seats.
The survey was conducted by IranPoll.com, an independent, Toronto-based polling organization (1012 adult Iranians were interviewed by telephone). The poll showed that majorities expressed favorable views of both President Rouhani (82 percent) and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif (78 percent). Relatedly, seven in ten Iranians continued to approve of the nuclear deal reached with the P5+1 countries (71 percent). By comparison, a recent Gallup poll in the United States found that only three in ten Americans approved of the deal—51 percent of Democrats, 9 percent of Republicans, 30 of percent Independents.
The results further showed that Iranians tend to say that Rouhani has been at least somewhat successful in improving the economic situation, improving security, and improving relations with European countries. But they are more likely to say he has been unsuccessful at reducing unemployment—which is their top concern heading into the elections. Roughly two in three said they are very likely to vote.
