Poll: Americans Sympathize More with Israel than Palestine

BY: Washington Free Beacon Staff

A new poll released Tuesday reveals that Americans sympathize more with Israel than Palestinians and would prefer Iran not acquire a nuclear weapon even if it means military action, according to Pew Research:

The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center, conducted March 13-17 among 1,501 adults, finds that 49 percent say they sympathize more with Israel, while just 12 percent sympathize more with the Palestinians and the same percentage (12 percent) volunteers that they sympathize with neither side.

Americans have consistently sympathized more with Israel since the 1970s. Many Republicans surveyed believe President Barack Obama favors Palestinians too much.

According to the survey, 64 percent of Americans say it is important to stop Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, even if military action is required. This is a sentiment that is shared across the political spectrum, although Republicans favor this view slightly more than Democrats.
