Poll: Iranian Views on Nuclear Weapons

A majority of Iranians oppose the development of nuclear weapons, according to a recent survey by IranPoll and The Chicago Council on Global Affairs. At the same time, most Iranians polled strongly support a peaceful nuclear energy program to provide an alternative to finite sources of fossil fuel and modernize development. Iran also produces nuclear isotopes for medical purposes.

The study was part of IranPoll’s ‘State of Iran Survey Series’ utilizing standard nationally representative sampling. Telephone interviews with 2,007 Iranians were conducted in two waves from October 25 to November 2, 2019 and from December 18-22, 2019. The sampling margin of error was +/- 3.09 percent for each wave.
