Poll: Americans Sympathize More with Israel

(Pew Research Center) As has been the case for decades, the American public expresses more sympathy toward Israel than the Palestinians - by 54% to 19%. Among Millennials (born after 1980), 43% report sympathizing more with Israel, while 27% are more sympathetic to the Palestinians. The share of this group sympathizing with the Palestinians has risen from 9% in 2006 to 20% in July 2014 to 27% today, while the share sympathizing with Israel has changed little. Baby Boomers (born 1946-1964) and those in the Silent generation (born 1928-1945) sympathize more with Israel by about four-to-one. Generation Xers (born 1965-1980) sympathize more with Israel than the Palestinians by roughly three-to-one (54% vs. 17%).
