AMMAN — The majority of Jordanians see Iran as the number one beneficiary of the deal it has reached with the P5+1 group over its nuclear programme, according to a survey by the University of Jordan's Centre for Strategic Studies (CSS). 

Forty-six per cent of the respondents believed that Iran has benefited the most from the nuclear deal with the world powers while 25 per cent and 18 per cent believed that the US and Israel were the top beneficiaries from the agreement, respectively, the poll revealed.

The survey was conducted between August 5 and 11 on 900 males and 900 females picked randomly from 150 areas across the Kingdom, the CSS said.  

According to the pollsters, the survey was aimed to measure awareness of Jordanians about the Iran nuclear deal in terms of who benefited the most and the impact of this agreement on the regional conflicts in Syria, Iraq and Yemen.

As stated in the poll’s report, a copy of which was made available to The Jordan Times, 39 per cent of the respondents supported the agreement and 22 per cent opposed it, while 25 per cent of them lacked knowledge to support or oppose this agreement.

Forty-one per cent of the interviewees believed that the agreement would have a negative impact on the Kingdom while 29 per cent believed otherwise, according to the poll.

For 30 per cent of the respondents, the signing of the agreement would help alleviate Tehran's threat to the region compared with 15 per cent who believed that the nuclear agreement would not ease the Iranian danger.  

 

On the impact of the deal on the region's turmoil, 26 per cent believed that the Iran nuclear agreement with the P5+1 group would lead to aggravating the conflicts in Syria, Iraq and Yemen while 20 per cent of the respondents expressed hope that the deal would have a positive impact on settling the region's conflicts.

THE STATISTICS OBSERVED IS DUE TO SAMPLING ERROR. FIRST, MOST PEOPLE WHO MAY DISAGREE WERE EXCLUDED BECAUSE THEY DO NOT HAVE THE TOOLS AND MEANS TO BE SAMPLED. SECOND, WHEN TO NEWS MEDIA AROUND THEM ARE SUPER SATURATED WITH IRANOPHOBIA AND WHAT SOUNDS LIKE THE EXTENSION OF THE AXIS OF EVIL. THIS FINDING IS THEREFORE ASSUMING AND MAKING
EITHER A TYPE ONE OR TWO ERRORS SECONDARY TO WHAT WE KNOW IN PSYCHIATRICS AS THE CRAZINESS OF TWO RATHER UNBIASED
POOLING SAMPLE.
