Abstract:

YouGov has recently conducted informative and intriguing public opinion poll among American citizens. The research was conducted in partnership with Arab News. The objectives of the poll were to explore American citizens’ perception of the Arab states, and their knowledge, familiarity and understanding of the current Gulf crisis between Qatar and four major Arab states, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain. In addition, the goal of the research was to examine Americans’ perception of Qatar, specifically aftermath the accusations regarding its support for terrorism. Intriguingly, only 27 percent of Americans viewed Qatar as an ally or partner of the US.  Qatar as an ally or partner of the US. The poll is considered the first of its kind. The overall result of the poll, which reveals a predominantly negative perception of Qatar among those who have knowledge about the issue, can be utilized in a number of ways including raising public awareness, further studies, as well as for political candidates, parties, and policy recommendations concerning Washington’s Qatar policy.
