Iran protests: What western media got wrong again
Two polls show that despite economic hardship, Iranians choose security over upheaval, support their government’s regional role, reject America & applaud the #IRGC‘s internal and external activities.
Poll numbers directly after the 2017/2018 protests/riots:
63% percent of Iranians said the police used appropriate force & 11% said they used “too little force.” 85% of Iranians agreed that “the gov’t should be more forceful to stop rioters who use violence or damage property.”
The two Iran polls were conducted jointly by the University of Maryland’s Center for International and Security Studies at Maryland (CISSM) and Toronto-based IranPolls.
