More Gallup data confirms American public’s overwhelming Israel support

More Gallup data confirms American public’s overwhelming Israel support

It would be political suicide for Democrats to embrace the anti-Israel far left.

A few days ago I wrote about the latest Gallup polling as to whether Americans sympathized more with Israel or the Palestinians.

Consistent with prior years, Americans overwhelmingly favor Israel by more than a 3-1 margin, while Bibi Netanyahu’s popularity has soared, Gallup: Americans still LOVE Israel a lot, Netanyahu popularity soars.

Gallup has now released more data, focusing on Israel’s favorability, Israel Maintains Positive Image in U.S.:

As Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Donald Trump meet in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, 71% of Americans have a favorable view of Israel and 27% an unfavorable view. That represents the fourth straight year that Israel’s favorable rating has been 70% or higher.

From 2005 through 2012, Israel’s favorable score varied between 63% and 71%, but with most readings below 70%. Before that, it was more volatile, surging to 79% during the 1991 Gulf War but registering below 60% at times in 1989, 1991, 1992, 2000, 2002 and 2004.

Gallup goes on to note the wide demographic support:

Israel enjoys a positive image among all major U.S. demographic and political groups, but scores particularly well with Republicans (81% view it favorably) and adults 65 and older (77%). While a majority of Democrats view Israel favorably, the 61% doing so is the lowest of any major subgroup.

While the youngest age group has the lowest favorability rating, it’s still 63%, which is very high. Even Democrats as a whole have a 61% favorability rating. I do expect that number is lower for liberal Democrats, consistent with prior Pew polling; Gallup doesn’t give us that data.

What these two data sets show is that among the American public as a whole, support for Israel is at or near historical highs.

It would be political suicide for Democrats to embrace, or let themselves be taken over by, the anti-Israel far left.

In the acute phase now of TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) does one really think the Dems will face reality? I fully expect FemDems in the House and Senate to all come in with hajibs similar to the actions SwedFems did for Iran. Can anyone assure me that won’t, can’t, couldn’t happen?

political suicide? I don’t think they’re at that stage of reflectiveness yet. Denial and blamestorming is the rage

    HOW Insane would it be if the FemDems started a trend by wearing a headbags? I think there are plenty of liberal ladies(?) willing to become ‘beasts of burden’, living Dem donkey’s as it were, for the Liberal cause.

Keeping Pelosi and Schumer as their leaders and electing Elison to DNC… now that is the Einstein definition of suicide…

Oh, how I hope they go with Ellison!

Trump should make a tweet tomorrow saying “Democrats! I forbid you to make Ellison your party chairman! I command you not to do it!!!”

Nothing could guarantee he wins better then that!

I wonder how many of these Israel supporters also support obama/Clinton. A lot of them. I guess that means they don’t really give a damn about Israel or America.
