“The Myth of the ‘Radical Minority’”

“46% of Lebanese Muslims have favourable views of Hezbollah” … so what? Iran’s threat, as always?

  • @thespainreport: National poll in @elespanolcom: if a general election were held today: PP -20 PSOE +10 Podemos -26 Ciudadanos +38 Vox would get first seat.

  • @JulianAssange: Between corruption scandals and polarization over Catalonia, Spain's ruling party PP continues to fall in polls.

  • @lluisgerard: And yet they are the most voted party. Pro-155 parties gain votes and Podemos loses a lot. So, Spain will never accept a Catalan referendum

無党派層が最大である以上、どういう投票率予想の下で計算しているか書かないと記事にはなんの意味もない。つまり、そもそもああいうのは意図はどうあれ印象操作である以外ない。だって実際の投票率がわからないんだから

Japan general elections 2017 - too fishy polls.

DLn6fhxUEAAW7ka
@ShingetsuNews: Yomiuri poll is all good news for PM Abe: threat from Party of Hope fading and CDPJ gains only marginal support.

DLxn0IZVAAITp2A
@ShingetsuNews: If NHK has it right, the Party of Hope has collapsed to former Democratic Party levels of support, and PM Abe's LDP heading for landslide.

DMADJwJUEAAxMgX
@ShingetsuNews: Opposition parties all receive miserable support ratings in latest Jiji poll, with CDPJ (leader) more-or-less in line with Hope & Communists

Too fishy - yes I think so - given people’s criticism against PM Abe prevalent in social media. Former LDP politician Katsuhiko Shirakawa (白川勝彦) also raises doubt, in his latest blog post, about Japanese MSM’s extraordinary election coverage that strongly suggests LDP’s landslide victory. He says we may see surprising results in the upcoming Oct. 22 elections. Don’t be fooled by manipulation!

“新たな世論調査の結果、アメリカ人の多くが、イランの都市のひとつに対して〔広島〕同様の攻撃を行い、数百万人の民間人を殺害することを支持していることが分かりました。

スタンフォード大学の政治学のサガン教授とダートマス大学の政治学のヴァレンティノ準教授は、26日木曜、ウォールストリートジャーナルの記事の中で、この世論調査の結果について説明しています。

この世論調査では、回答者に、アメリカが核合意へのイランの違反を発見した後に同国に対する厳しい制裁を行使したという偽造されたニュースを読ませています。イランは、これに対して、ペルシャ湾でアメリカの空母を攻撃し、アメリカ兵2403人が死亡させます。このアメリカ兵の死者数は、1941年9月7日の日本の真珠湾攻撃で死亡した人の数です。さらに議会はイランに対して宣戦布告し、アメリカ大統領は、イランの無条件降伏を求めます。アメリカの軍幹部は大統領の前に、2万人のアメリカ兵が犠牲になる可能性を有するテヘランへの地上攻撃でイラン政府を降伏させるか、テヘラン近郊に核爆弾を落として、イランの民間人10万人を殺害するかの二つの選択肢を提示します。

二人の大学関係者が述べたように調査結果は驚きに値するもので、回答者の59%がイランの一都市への原爆投下を支持しています。共和党の支持者はこのような攻撃を認める可能性が高く、81%がそれを支持しています。民主党では47%がこれに賛成しています。

奇妙なのは、イラン市民の被害者数が最初の数字の20倍に増えても、59%がイランへの攻撃に賛成する、と回答していることです”

“The ‘moderate’ side of Islam”

Throughout the US presidential race last year, I witnessed, mainly via Twitter, MSM’s intense manipulation of public opinion in favor of Hillary. Since then, I’ve become highly skeptical about this kind of opinion poll. What methodology did they employ for this research? But more importantly, to try to evaluate a religion using the result of an opinion poll is, I believe, a stupid attempt.

US The Biggest Threat To World Peace In 2013 – Poll

from anarcho-queer.tumblr.com (Jan. 3 2014):

The US has been voted as the most significant threat to world peace in a survey across 68 different countries. Anti-American sentiment was not only recorded in antagonistic countries, but also in many allied NATO partners like Turkey and Greece.

A global survey conducted by the Worldwide Independent Network and Gallup at the end of 2013 revealed strong animosity towards the US’s role as the world’s policeman. Citizens across over 60 nations were asked: “Which country do you think is the greatest threat to peace in the world today?”

The US topped the list, with 24 percent of people believing America to be the biggest danger to peace. Pakistan came second, with 8 percent of the vote and was closely followed by China with 6 percent. Afghanistan, Iran, Israel and North Korea came in joint fourth place with 5 percent of the vote.

The threat from the US was rated most highly in the Middle East and North Africa, those areas most recently affected by American military intervention. Moreover, the survey showed that even Americans regard their country as a potential threat with 13 percent of them voting the US could disrupt global status quo.

Latin America expressed mixed feelings towards its northerly neighbor, with Peru, Brazil and Argentina all flagging the US as the most dangerous country.

After its numerous threats of a strike on Iran, many countries voted Israel was the biggest threat to prosperity. Morocco, Lebanon and Iraq all chose Israel as the number one danger to world peace.

Support for Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe slid in opinion polls after his ruling coalition steamrolled through parliament a tough secrecy act, Reuters reported. Support for the government fell 13.9 points to 54.6 percent in a poll by broadcaster JNN, the lowest since he took office. However, backing for the main opposition Democratic Party rose just 0.9 point to 6.8 percent and the 30.3 percent who supported Abe's ruling Liberal Democratic Party. Abe said he should have taken more time to explain the bill carefully. Critics fear the legislation could muzzle media and allow officials to hide misdeeds.

韓国の人々が日本産海産物の輸入禁止を要求

from IRIB Japanese Radio (2013年10月14日):

韓国の人々が、日本産海産物の輸入禁止を求めています。

中国・新華社通信が韓国の首都ソウルから伝えたところによりますと、韓国で行なわれた新たな世論調査の結果、3分の2の韓国人が、福島第一原子力発電所の汚染水流出問題を理由として、日本産海産物の全面的な輸入禁止に賛成しているということが明らかになりました。
韓国に住む19歳以上の500人を対象としたこの世論調査の結果、65%の回答者が韓国政府は日本産海産物を全面的に輸入禁止とするために、緊急の措置を講じるべきであると考えていることが明らかになっています。
この世論調査はまた、半数以上の回答者が「健康上の懸念から、日本産海産物の購入を控える」と語ったということを示しています。
また、回答者の4分の3も、「このような海産物を買わざるを得ないが、その消費に不安を感じている」と語っています。
韓国は先月上旬、福島近海でとれた海産物の輸入禁止措置を実施しました。
現在、1日当たり数百トンの放射性汚染水が海洋に流出していると報告されており、このため、日本産海産物の安全性に関する韓国の消費者の深刻な懸念を引き起こしています。

Americans believe Russian President Vladimir Putin has been the most effective world leader in steering geo-political affairs during the Syrian chemical weapons crisis, according to an Economist/YouGov survey. Forty-nine percent of those surveyed said Putin deserves the most credit for how he handled events following US accusations that Syrian President Bashar Assad had used chemical weapons against his citizens near Damascus on August 21. Just 25 percent of respondents said US President Barack Obama was most effective. And 9 percent said Assad deserves the nod. Overall, 30 percent of Americans approve of Obama’s handling of the crisis, while 44 percent disapprove

“08:30 GMT: There’s no public support for the Western military intervention in Syria as the surveys performed in the US and its allied states reveal that people object their country’s troops fighting in yet another the Middle Eastern war.

The poll performed by Huffington Post and YouGov showed that only 25 percent of the Americans believe that military response is required after the last week’s alleged chemical attack on civilians by the Syrian government of Bashar Assad.

Just 9 percent of Britons want to see their military taking part in the Syrian conflict, which has been underway since March 2011, with surveys in France and Germany also indicating public opposition towards Western intervention.”

Americans Losing Faith: 1 in 5 Have No Religion, Atheism on the Rise

The survey, conducted by The Pew Research Center's Forum on Religion and Public Life in conjunction with PBS' Religion & Ethics Newsweekly, found that one-fifth of Americans – and nearly a third of adults under 30 – are religiously unaffiliated today. This marks the highest percentages that have ever been recorded by Pew Research Center polling.

What makes these numbers even more unsettling is the understanding that the shift away from organized religion has been steadily increasing over the past decade or so, with the most dramatic results occurring in the past five years.

Since 2007, the percentage of respondents that have claimed to be religiously unaffiliated increased from 15 percent to 20 percent of all U.S. adults in 2012. Those religiously unaffiliated individuals include more than 13 million atheists and agnostics which represent almost six percent of the U.S. population and also nearly 33 million people who say they have no particular religious affiliation at all.
