    Pollsters in Iraq treated with suspicion

    Apparently, pollsters operating in Iraq are treated with suspicion by both sides in the ongoing war there, according to this article at SFGate:

    "In Iraqi society, they're not used to seeing people knocking on doors asking people what they think about politics and the government," said the former professor of business administration in Baghdad. "That's why many of my employees have been jailed and beaten." They also have been taken hostage by insurgent groups, accused of spying for the Americans and for their violent opponents and banned by militia groups in both the Kurdish north and Shiite south.
