Is it any wonder that no one trusts polls?

Ok so who in their right mind is polling Egyptions?  Oh yeah I’m sure that is going to be a fair and balanced poll.  “Ah yes we polled everyone, except for women, who aren’t smart enough to talk about politics, virtually all minorities, and any dissenters.  Death to the infidel!”

First the good news: U.S. President Barack Obama is more than twice as popular in Egypt as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadenijad.

Now, the bad news: the American president’s standing has never been worse in Egypt, plummeting since 2008, when he received a 25 percent favorability rating, to 12 percent in 2011.  Even Osama Bin Laden, the late al Qaeda leader, was more popular this year, with a 21 percent favorability ranking. The Iranian leader fared worse, dropping from 21 percent favorability rating in 2008 to a miserable 5 percent.
