U.S. Support Of Israel Remains Strong At 64%; The Highest Poll Results Since 1991's Gulf War

American-Israeli Relations: In Snapshot

Sometimes a snapshot can tell a story; this is one of those times: One of the most noteworthy findings, Gallup says, is that "Palestinians receive the highest sympathy from Democrats, liberals, and postgraduates, but even among these, support tops off at 24%."
Americans Favour Israelis Over Palestinians, says data from Gallup's 2013 World Affairs poll, conducted Feb. 7-10. The Gallup site says: "As President Barack Obama prepares to visit Israel, the Palestinian West Bank, and Jordan next week—his first trip to the region as president—Americans' sympathies lean heavily toward the Israelis over the Palestinians, 64% vs. 12%. Americans' partiality for Israel has consistently exceeded 60% since 2010; however, today's 64% ties the highest Gallup has recorded in a quarter century, last seen in 1991 during the Gulf War. At that time, slightly fewer than today, 7%, sympathized more with the Palestinians."
