I tend not to trust polls because they can so easily be skewed. I didn't
see the range of questions asked, the order or the context. They said that
the ~ 1000 respondents in each country were selected by random dialling,
but they didn't say what the total number of people dialled was. I find it
hard to believe all those dialled participated because I know what I do
when I receive a call from a pollster. That means the respondents were to
some extent self-selecting. Then the question becomes why would some people
be willing to take the time to express an opinion about ISIS and others
not? You might find that the answer to that question already creates a pool
favorable to ISIS.

Then you must consider why the poll was commissioned by Russian money. I
suspect they were looking for the results they got more than they were
looking for the truth.
