[Of course, this ‘poll’ depends on what definition of ‘democracy’ the polled accept. And then there’s the technics of conducting the poll, the questions asked and who was polled, so all in all, I’d suggest that the results tell us more about the institution doing the polling, NATO, than the polled, and anyway, why is NATO conducting this poll in the first place and then NOT revealing the findings to the publics at large? WB]
A NATO front organization recently released their polling report “Democracy Perception Index 2021”, and its poll-findings in the 53 surveyed countries contradict more than confirm what NATO’s own propaganda routinely asserts; so, though these findings are major news, they are suppressed, instead of publicized, by NATO, and are practically a secret NATO poll. These rankings are published here for the very first time; they weren’t published, at all, in the NATO-affiliated report, but I calculated them from the data, which were published (and even those data were suppressed by the polls’ sponsors).
