Americans view Israel favorably, according to Gallup

 


Israel’s “favorable” rating in the United States has climbed to a 23-year high in the Gallup poll, even as the Obama administration has been pressuring the Israeli government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to make a peace deal that would result in the creation of a Palestinian state.

Almost four times as many Americans view Israel favorably as view the Palestinian Authority favorably, according to Gallup. Currently, 72 percent of Americans surveyed say they have a favorable opinion of Israel, while only 23 percent say they have an unfavorable opinion.

Only 19 percent of Americans say the have a favorable opinion of the Palestinian Authority. That ties the Palestinian Authority with Libya, which was also viewed favorably by only 19 percent of Americans.
