Iraqis polled; which country to model their government?

The election is over. The results are in. A recent poll taken asked Iraqis which government they would like the new government to emulate: Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria, the United States, or the United Arab Emirates? It is interesting that the younger generation chose the U.S., as older citizens chose the U.A.E. or Iran. It has been said that younger generations favor Western practices while older generations cling to the old regime. Either way and in spite of continued fighting, a new Iraq is emerging.

Just over a week before the historic Iraqi election of January 30, 2005, an Abu Dhabi TV / Zombie International poll asked 805 Iraqi adults about their inclinations. The results are an invaluable barometer of Iraqi sentiment as the country moves into the next historic, no doubt tumultuous phase in its modern history.

By a large margin, Iraqis would most like to see their country emulate the United Arab Emirates in forming its new government (37%). This choice is followed by a diverse crew of runners-up: Iran (16%), the United States (14%), Syria (7%), and Saudi Arabia (5%). One out of five respondents (20%) are not sure, or don’t have a model in mind.

Once again, differences between age groups are striking. Among young people (18-24), one out of three (33%) would like to see Iraq emulate the U.S., with 30% favoring the U.A.E. and 16% preferring Iran. Warm feelings toward the U.S. drop sharply as age rises, with affection for Syria and the Emirates surging in Iraqis over 70.

Shias are the only religious group with a strong interest in Iranian-style theocracy (29%); otherwise they are partial to the UAE (34%) or are not sure (19%). Sunni Arabs lean heavily toward the UAE (50%), followed by predominantly Sunni Syria (19%). Iraq's Kurds are best-disposed toward the U.S., with fully 58% preferring an American-style government in Iraq.
