Poll: Americans Becoming Less Pro-Israel, More Pro-Palestinian

(JNS) While Americans continue to favor the Israelis over the Palestinians, 55% now sympathize with Israelis and 26% with the Palestinians, according to a new Gallup poll.

That percentage of Americans who side with the Palestinians represents a new high. The slight dip in support for Israelis and the increase for the Palestinians is based on a 2022 survey conducted from Feb. 1-17.

The poll also found that 77% of Republicans sympathize more with Israelis while only 13% with the Palestinians. Among independents, 54% side with Israelis and 26% with Palestinians. And with Democrats, 40% favor the Israelis and 38% the Palestinians.

Still, the favorability of the Jewish state itself remains high, according to the poll, with 71% of U.S. adults saying they have a favorable view of Israel while 27% have a favorable opinion of the Palestinian Authority.

The 71% viewing Israel favorably today matches the average since 2013, while the 27% favorable to the Palestinian Authority exceeds the 22% in that period and continues the upward trend seen in this sentiment over the past decade.
