The results of a new comprehensive public opinion survey
released by the International Republican Institute (IRI) in Jordan show an increasing sense of dissatisfaction among citizens. Jordan, a Sunni Muslim-majority constitutional monarchy wedged between Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the West Bank is a key strategic ally of the United States and a recipient of a tremendous amount of American aid. The resource-deprived Kingdom plays an important stabilizing role
in the region and is also a vital partner in the fight against the Islamic State (ISIS
) and other extremist groups working to establish power and influence throughout the Levant.
