Tunisian public opinion: don't discount the Arab left

Look at this comprehensive survey of Tunisian public opinion.  The Nahdah Party has the support of 1/3 of Tunisian public, which is within less a percentage point from public support from the leftist Democratic Progressive Party.  More importantly, the Communist Workers Party got the support of 9.2% of the public (the party really was the leading force in the Tunisian uprising).
