Poll Shows Overwhelming Conservative Support for Israel

A new Pew poll found that Americans  sympathize with Israel rather than the Palestinians, by a 49 percent to 11 percent margin. It also found that 41 percent of Americans think Hamas is responsible for the violence as opposed to 12 percent who hold Israel responsible, while 50 percent believe that Israel has responded about right and 7 percent said it has not gone far enough, compared to 24 percent who said Israel has gone too far. When put differently, the results were a little more mixed, with 40 percent of Americans saying they approve of Israel’s action and 33 percent saying they disapprove.

But some of the more interesting data comes when you break down the numbers down. For instance, while 75 percent of conservatives sympathize with Israel, only 34 percent of liberals sympathize with Israel. Also, 70 percent of white evangelicals sympathize with Israel.
