Poll: American voters' support for Israel rising
Advertisements [?]
WASHINGTON Americans support for Israel is up, with the increase coming from unexpected sectors, an Israel Project poll released on Thursday revealed.

The poll demonstrated that support for Israel among President Barack Obamas Democratic voters was on the rise, and that the majority of Americans believed that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was more committed to peace than his Palestinian counterpart.

Support for Israel among Democrats has risen by 10 percentage points in the past six months, while support among independent voters and Republicans has remained steady.

This poll shows that Israel is significantly more popular among American voters than either the president or Congress, Israel Project Founder and President Jennifer Laszlo-Mizrahi said. Second, it shows that the American public really supports the peace process and the two-state solution.

This is heartening news. Funny that Israel is seen more favorably by Americans than Congress is.
