In the last few years the support for Israel has been declining…
The statistics point to one reason why this trend is quite disturbing.
For over 20 years the Gallup poll has done a survey and the shocking results are something that we need to be able to turn around.
Here’s what they found…
#1. 54% of Americans say they sympathize more with Israel than Palestine.
31% say they sympathize with the Palestinians over Israel.
This is the first time support for Israel has not been at least 2-to-1 over the support for the Palestinians.
But breaking this down, here’s the disturbing insight into what is happening:
#2. Republican support for Israel is up 18 points over the last two decades.
In other words, support for Israel has not declined among Republicans but increased.
#3. Support for Israel over the Palestinians among independents is up five points.
Support for Israel also has increased, not decreased among those who are independents.
But here is the shocker…
#4. Democrat support for Israel has fallen 13 points, from 51% to 38%.
That’s right. Democrat support for Israel has crashed.
This is the first time ever Democrats have favored Palestinian radicals over Israel. Today’s support by Democrats for Israel is only 38%. Support for radical Palestinians skyrocketed to 51%.
Why? I’m curious what do you think? Why do you think there has been this dramatic decline only among the Democrats and their support for Israel?
