A new Pew Research Center poll finds that the Iranian regime’s global image remains overwhelmingly negative. Ratings for the Iranian regime in several Middle Eastern nations have declined significantly in recent years.

Hassan Rouhani, the regime so-called moderate President, also receives poor marks in the region. In Turkey, Tunisia, Jordan and Egypt, Rouhani is even less popular than his predecessor, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Meanwhile, American attitudes toward Iran remain strongly negative, with roughly three-in-four holding unfavorable views.

These are among the major findings of a new survey by the Pew Research Center conducted in 40 countries among 44,628 respondents from March 17 to May 25, 2014.

Ratings for Iran are low in the Middle East, and have been dropping steadily in recent years. In 2006, roughly half or more in Egypt, Jordan and Turkey had a positive opinion of Iran; today, fewer than one-in-five in all three countries hold this view. Similarly, Iran’s favorability rating among Palestinians has dropped from 55% in 2007 to 33% now.

Hassan Rouhani receives poor marks throughout the Middle Eastern countries surveyed.
