A survey published by the Middle East News Agency (MENA) revealed that 35 percent of Egyptians support the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). It Also showed that 58% would not elect a President from a different religion while 60% may vote for a Vice President from a different religion.

The poll, conducted by the Cabinet's Centre of Information, revealed that while 35% of Egyptians support the Muslim Brotherhood, 21% of those who participated in the poll have differing views. The Brotherhood, which was founded in 1928, became officially banned in 1954. Athough it was mildly tolerated by Mubarak, its members were subjected to regular crackdowns.

Following the fall of Mubarak in February 2011, the MB, regarded as the best organized political force in the country, formed a legitimate political party allowing it to participate in the elections as a party. During the Mubarak era the MB candidates ran as independents.

The poll also indicated that 75% of Egyptians chose to state their religion on their ID cards. Moreover, 78% of those surveyed stated they believed there was an amicable relationship between Christians and Muslims in Egypt, while 50% believed that "foreign elements" were behind any sedition and strife.
