80% of Democrats Agree the U.S. Should Call for a Ceasefire and De-Escalation of Violence in Gaza [View all]

A new Data for Progress poll, fielded as part of our national omnibus survey from October 18 to 19, finds that 66% of voters “strongly agree” or “somewhat agree” with the following statement:

The U.S. should call for a ceasefire and a de-escalation of violence in Gaza. The U.S. should leverage its close diplomatic relationship with Israel to prevent further violence and civilian deaths.

This includes 80% of Democrats, 57% of Independents, and 56% of Republicans.
