Arab Center Washington DC (ACW) conducted a public opinion survey in the Arab world in cooperation with the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies (ACRPS) based in Doha, Qatar. The poll surveyed a randomly selected sample of 3,600 respondents covering nine Arab countries, namely Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Kuwait, Morocco, the Palestinian Territories (the West Bank and the Gaza Strip), Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Jordan with 400 respondents from each country. Polling was carried out during the period October 21-31, 2016 by One-2-One, a British registered public surveying company based in Tunisia. Interviews were conducted by telephone.
Survey questions reflected a number of topical questions in the global media debate. Respondents to the survey were asked about a variety of topics, including which candidate was most likely to positively affect US policy towards their home countries; which they would prefer to see as president; and which candidate was more likely to engender anti-Arab hostility. The results show a clear preference
The sample was selected using the Probability Proportional to Size (PPS) method, which ensures that each individual within a country has an equal likelihood of being included in the sample. As a result of this sampling method, the country-level samples used in this survey are representative of the respective populations in terms of gender and educational attainment. All respondents were 18 years of age or older at the time of the survey. The resultant margin of error for each country-level sample is ±5%.
