Washington, DC – IRI today released its most recent public opinion survey in Tunisia, which showed that although Tunisians believe their economic situation is worse than it has ever been, a majority still prefer a democracy with instability over a stable but authoritarian regime. This is despite the fact that Tunisians are unhappy with the performance of the government and believe the country is headed in the wrong direction.  Highlights of the survey include:
This is the 10th poll IRI has conducted in Tunisia since January 2011, and the sixth since the national constituent assembly elections on October 23, 2011.  Fieldwork for the poll was conducted from October 1-12, 2013.  The survey was undertaken in cooperation with Elka Consulting, a Tunisia-based market survey research firm.  A total of 1,236 interviews were completed, yielding an overall margin of error of ± 2.84 percent at the midrange of the 95 percent confidence level.  This poll was conducted with support from the Middle East Partnership Initiative.
