Lebanese See Hezbollah as Politically Stronger After Conflict With Israel

Well that didn't quite work out as planned:
Almost half say they [sic] their personal opinion of Hezbollah has improved

by Richard Burkholder
Regional Research Director, Middle East


By a wide majority, Lebanese say they believe Hezbollah's political position within Lebanon is now stronger (64%) rather than weaker (23%) as a result of the recent 34-day conflict with Israel. Even Christians and Sunnis -- groups not overly disposed toward Hezbollah -- believe this to be the case by margins of roughly 2 to 1 (56% vs. 29% among Christians; 57% vs. 28% among Sunnis).
