Arab Views Evolve Following Arab Spring

By Katherine White, Staff Editor

A recent Arab Public Opinion Poll conducted in several Arab countries by the Anwar Sadat Chair for Peace and Development reveals that 55% of pollsters are "more optimistic about the future of the Arab world in light of the Arab Spring." While the majority of Arabs polled still expressed unfavorable views of the United States (59%), the number of respondents that hold favorable views of the U.S. has increased since 2010. This improvement may reflect the belief among Arabs that the U.S. has played a constructive role in facilitating the Arab Spring, which would represent a major foreign policy success for the Obama administration.
