U.S Survey finds strong support for Khamenei

by Shutruk on


This is an American-based polling agency which is well-respected.  This is the full questionnaire and answers for the survey

which was previously announced here.



Khamenei is an angel to the religious masses

by Shutruk on


Sure, all the royalists, communists, liberals, separatists, feminists and Bahais on this forum hate Khamenei - we know that. But inside Iran, the conservative and religious masses love him.

Btw, 15% of those polled did not offer a favourable opinion of Khamenei: That translates as 0.15*47m  = 7 million Iranians.

Why can't you accept that there are millions who oppose the regime but also many more who support it?

Why do you lot always claim that 99.99% of Iranians agree with you always? That would be totalitarian.


Is it April first already?

You're right COP Jaan

The average guy in Iran is sitting at home drinking his tea.  All of a sudden, his phone rings and there's a voice in the other end saying that he's calling from the U.S., and wants to know what this guy's opinion is about Khamenei.  I'm sure the guy is going to spill his guts out and tell the caller what he REALLY things about Ali geda.  :-))


We all know about these "polls"

They were tagord's favorite "proof" that the regime enjoys popular support in Iran.

I am sure that people who are answering these poll calls - in Iran - give their true opinion about WHATEVER is being asked. Afterall, the level of trust is very high in Iran nowadays, we all know that.





Shturak - you're so funny

by Cost-of-Progress on

You are just freakin' hilarious. Where does the regime find you people? Nevermind, I know tha answer...how's the weather in south lebanon, by the way? 





shuturk: Are you for real??

shuturk: Are you for real?? I doubt that you're Iranian..Thanks for the laugh.


I go with the guess of about 50%

by Escape on

Its a safe guess.I think every guess is about equal to mine because who knows?

I have to consider some things when making mine.

1.Definately not every single person in Iran hates Khameni like some bloggers would insist (diligently) for you to believe.They show up and cheer.

2.Definately not every single person loves Khameni or they wouldn't be defecting and the execution rate would not be so high.

if I was in IRan somebody calling me, I wouldn't dare to tell them the truth. Doesn't Sepah always brag about how they control all form of communications?  this poll means nothing. what was the poll lets say 3 years before the revolution regarding Shah?


My pleasure

by Shutruk on


85% of Iranians inside Iran like Khamenei. Probably the reverse is true for those Iranians living outside of Iran.


Should it really surprise anyone?
