Iranian retaliation and UA plane crash: What has been the predominant reaction of the Iranians?



What do the Iranian people mostly think about the recent Ukrainian plane crash in Tehran? Do they believe in the Iranian interpretation of a technical error or do they believe the Western states reporting an Iranian missile hit the plane on accident?

Related question - what is the predominant view of the Iranian retaliation? Do they believe the Iranian government's statement of 80 killed or USA's statement of no victims?

6If I were in Iran and some asked me "Do you believe our government version or the USA version?", I would always answer "I do believe our government version!", just in case the pollster were a member of the security forces... Even if enough time had passed to get some polling done (it has not), polls in a country without freedom of speech are unlikely to be reliable (or, if you want, they are likely to be even less reliable). – SJuan76 – 2020-01-10T08:51:59.790

1@SJuan76, also, should be noticed, that, in some other countries (US as sudden example) questions about, for example, tolerance/intolerance towards LGBT also unlikely to be reliable. Just because the pollster can then report about harassment and then go to court. So, in general, each and every sharp-questioned poll is unreliable in each and every country. – user2501323 – 2020-01-10T09:06:08.983

1@user2501323 Well that's irrelevant and paranoid, I didn't find any case where a pollster would be sued for sexual harassment. Apart from the fact, private questions are usually asked confidentially and anonymously. But SJuan76 is right this can be an issue with political questions, particulary in a country where monitoring and censorship is known to exist. – Probably – 2020-01-10T09:17:26.200

1@Probably, I see. I'm sorry - I've muddled anti-democratic state with falcificated polls with shining-city-on-the-hill, where all polls and elections are always good and transparent. ..) In that case, what's the point of your question? If you just waiting for answer about US bringing light of freedom and cruel Iran regime? – user2501323 – 2020-01-10T09:19:37.800

2@Probably: I think user2501323 is saying that the POLLSTER might be offended/take the POLLED to court over an insensitive answer. If I were polled in person, my answers would not be truthful if I thought my REAL answer might enrage the pollster. Most likely I would just refuse to participate thus skewing the poll results. – James – 2020-01-10T12:22:15.017

@James, EXACTLY what I mean. – user2501323 – 2020-01-10T12:56:40.893

3@James I reacted to the sentence: "Just because the pollster can then report about harassment and then go to court" Of course, there's always this fear but it doesn't make all social science useless and if you live in a society with free speech and fill in the survey on a computer without giving up any of your personals, you can somewhat guess what's the prevalent opinion. – Probably – 2020-01-10T13:25:34.017
