Saakashvili buys love abroad2011-07-06 19:51
Las week a number of Georgian mass media were exultant about a research carried out by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner (USA) claiming that nearly 80% Georgians support policies pursued by Saakashvili and his government. Yesterday, the IPM institute of public opinion and marketing presented its results stating that only 4% of the country's citizens like Mishiko. What's the reason for such a colossal mismatch? The answer is near at hand.
The widely advertised pro-governmental mass media research carried out by Greendberg Quinlan Rosner shows that 77% of Sakartvelo's citizens approve of Mikheil Saakashvili's activities. 61% of voters, as reported, are ready to vote for the president's National Movement if a parliamentarian election is held next weekend. Curiously enough, the break-off from the closest rival (the Christian Democratic movement) would be immense - 48%. According to the results of the poll, they would get not more than 13%. The conclusions seem astounding.
Then why would there be radical protests in May that led to a massacre in Rustaveli avenue? Is it really a bloody provocation?
Any president receiving such encouraging statistics would immediately hold early elections to monetize this colossal support. But the schemer from Tbilisi is not in a hurry. Isn't it strange?
That is why before calling poor people that were devoured by Vano Merabishvili's officers provokers, it would be right to study weird details of this "research". Firstly, it is suspicious that Greendberg Quinlan Rosner is stubbornly referred to as an international organization in pro-governmental mass media. It is not true at all: this is an American company located in Washington and specializing in political PR, not public opinion.
It is interesting why would the lobbying agency on the Potomac river banks would be so concerned over the opinion of Georgians about their president and policies he is pursuing? And how accurately is this opinion reflected in "the research" that was so enthusiastically accepted by Saakashvili-controlled mass media?
The answers to all these questions are presented in the result of a research carried out by the IPM Institute of public opinion and marketing as commented by Gochi Tskhitishvili, IPM director in his interview with Telegraph newspaper. According to him, Mikheil Saakashvili has unconditional support of 4% of voters. This is one third of 12% of the population that has an active civil position, those whom the country "depends on". 40% of citizens of Georgia, as the Institute of Public Opinion and Marketing claims, conform to any regime. They always support the strong - even if it is Hitler sitting in Avlabari.
Those 40% of the population that seek personal benefit support the National Movement, but if a stronger candidate appears, the rating will change immediately", - Gochi Tskitishvili remarks.
Out of the remaining 60% of the population of the Transcaucasian republic one fifth are the "pillars of the nation", and the remaining 48% are people that lost the sense of initiative and any hope for the future thanks to Saakashvili's regime. "These 48% want to work, to take part in creating wealth, but they are not given such an opportunity", - IPM director explains. As a result, almost one half of Sakartvelo's citizens are people broken by Saakashvili's dictatorship. Recalling the events in May the reason why is clear.
The real rating of Mikheil Nikolozovich and his team consists of 4% sincere supporters of the regime and 40% of indifferent temporizers. It is highly possible that the first group are Mishiko's accomplices.
