Shocking Gallup Poll Finds More Democrats Now Take Sides Against Israel
Washington, DC – A shocking new Gallup poll finds that for the first time, more Democrats sympathize with Palestinians than with Israel in the long-standing Middle East conflict.
RJC CEO Matt Brooks said:
"This is an extremely troubling trend. Many elected Democrats claim to be pro-Israel, but party activists and rank-and-file members are increasingly indifferent and even hostile to the Jewish state. It’s long past time for Democratic leaders to admit they have a problem that must be addressed to restore the historic bipartisan support for Israel."
According to Gallup, 49 percent of Democrats say that their sympathies are more with Palestinians versus 38 percent who sympathize more with Israel. Republicans continue to support Israel by robust margins.
