71% of Iraqis feel good about their personal situation

Will Thursday's vote make political relationships any clearer in Iraq than the election last January? A survey conducted by SPIEGEL -- along with the US broadcaster ABC News and other international media partners in Iraq -- suggests that a high voter turnout can be expected.

Conducted by Oxford University and the University of Baghdad, the survey suggests a solid commitment to democracy; 6 out of 10 Iraqis prefer a democratic system to some sort of rule by an Islamic leader.
