Baseera Poll
(Data: Baseera)

Latest opinion poll by the Egyptian Centre for Public Opinion Research (Baseera) indicated that 67 percent of Egyptians are “content” with the police’s dispersal operation of two pro-Morsi sit-ins on 14 August.

The same poll showed that 24 percent of respondents aren’t content and 9 percent are undecided.

According to Magued Osman, head of the Centre, the poll also showed that only 17 percent of the respondents believe the sit-in was unarmed. Sixty-seven percent believe it contained weapons, and only 16 percent say they don’t know.

Twenty-four percent of Egyptians who participated in the survey say it would have been better to give more time for negotiations. Meanwhile, 70 percent view the time period the Muslim Brotherhood had to end their protests was sufficient and they should not be given more chances.

Regarding the use of force to disperse the pro-Morsi sit-ins, 23 percent say the dispersal used excessive force, while 65 percent believe it wasn’t too violent. However, 56 percent of respondents consider the death toll from the dispersal to be too high. Thirty-four percent didn’t think it was. Sixty-two percent say the reason for the high number is due to the protesters and only 13 percent say the police are responsible, and 25 percent aren’t sure.

On international reactions, 78 percent of respondents believe countries who object to the security forces’ move don’t have the right to do so, while 8 percent say it is the right reaction, and 15 percent aren’t sure.

Thirty-nine percent of respondents believe the Egyptian responses to international reactions were good, while 32 percent say it was average, and 10 percent say it was bad.

The survey was conducted on a sample of 1,395 Egyptians ages 18+ via telephone and mobile interviews from 19-21 August. The research was launched four days following the dispersal of the sit-ins to allow people to grasp an understanding of the events and form a sense of the aftermath, according to Osman.

Morsi supporters protested for several weeks at Cairo’s Rabaa Al-Adawiya and Giza’s Al-Nahda calling for the reinstatement of deposed Islamist president Mohamed Morsi.

Yup They'll Support it until the Police come for them
as the story goes. A year from now, the same people who helped the remnants kick Morsi out, will be back on the streets fightng for their freedoms again. Unlike the Mubarak protest, these will end just as badly as it did for the Morsi Supporters.

not against islam/muslim
this statitic shows the people who are against the political islam that suppreses the individual freedom which is the favour of the majority and guarded by the govermnt throuegh security agencies for the benefit of all parties and the nation of egyipt. It is toatly missleading to see the action by the goverment is against islam and muslim. We all know Sisi and his team are devoted muslims who are spiritually more enlightened and morally better than those street preachers who push the women and children to the street to comit suicide before the police while hiding themself in the comfort zone snd chant human right.

Proof
The proof is there it is not a joke, even make your own poll if you wish, the majority of Egyptians do agree with Sisi and we do not believe he is a killer. If you enjoy the way people want to burn their own country and turn it into Afghanistan then continue supporting the Brotherhood as you please.

killing civilian is a crime against humanity
Killing civilian & peaceful protester anti-coup is a crime against humanity. This survey is scandalous public opinion to justify despicable crime. Massacres & injury caused to protester must be punished by ICJ, only insane believe in atrocities. Illegal coup d'état is a crime, more so when thousand of lives were killed. This barbaric interim military government deserved condemnation by world community.

What peace?
I do not understand why you are using the word "peaceful" when they clearly had tons of weapons hidden with them, went and burnt down hundreds of buildings as well as burning police alive. Seeing as 30 million went into the streets I do not believe "coup" is the word you are looking for.

Liers!
A poll should be statistically independent and not under the pressure of SIsi! BTW, didnt Al Ahram told us that Morsi will lose the elections? While he the outcome shows that he was the first! Conclusions, this study hasnt any value, especially in a thirld world country full of corruption and opression!
