IDI: Israelis optimistic despite Iran threat

More than three-quarters of Israelis are optimistic about their country’s future, despite security, socioeconomic and other serious challenges that lie ahead, the Israel Democracy Institute found in its annual Democracy Index published on Thursday.
The index is an extensive annual public opinion poll project, which has been conducted by the IDI’s Guttman Center for Surveys since 2003. The 57-question survey of a representative national sample of 1,025 Israeli adults (834 Jews and 191 Arabs) was taken by Tel Aviv University’s Cohen Institute for Public Opinion between April 16 and May 17. It had a margin of error of only 3.1 percentage points.
