WSJ Poll: Majority of Americans Back Israel in War with Hamas
A majority of Americans support Israel in its war against the Hamas terrorist organization, according to a new survey published Monday, December 11, by the Wall Street Journal.
According to the poll, 55% of Americans believe that Israel is responding with the appropriate level of military force needed to defend itself following the October 7 massacre, while 25% believe that Israel is using disproportionate force.
42% of voters said that they sympathize more with Israel than with the Palestinian Arabs, compared to just 12% who sympathize more with the Palestinian Arabs.
Support for Israel was significantly lower among Democrats. Just 17% of Democratic voters said that they sympathize more with Israel, while nearly 25% sympathize more with the Palestinian Arabs. About half of Democratic voters said that they are equally sympathetic to both sides.
The survey found that foreign policy ranks low on American voters’ lists of top concerns going into next year’s presidential elections and that the war between Israel and Hamas is the top issue of only a small percentage of voters, most of whom are more concerned by issues which directly affect the US such as the economy and immigration.
