Support for Israel should not be a Republican or Democrat issue. But surprisingly it is.
Support of Israel has fallen off a cliff by the Democrats. It’s fallen 43% support to 33%.
This is a radical change.
Worse, Democrats support for the Palestinians has skyrocketed. Since 2014, Palestinian support went from 17% to 31%.
74% of Republicans sympathize more than Israel. This margin of 41% is the largest since Pew Research started tracking the numbers.
As the Democrat Party became more statist and secular, support for Israel is collapsing.
About a quarter of Democratic Party support of Israel has disappeared in the past eight months. In April of 2016 the support of Israel was 43% and today 33%.
For the first time in history approximately the same percentage of Democrats sympathize with Israel as they sympathize with the Palestinians.
This reflects eight years of the Obama Administration undermining Israel and the ideological shift of the Democrat leadership.
Fortunately, Trumps statements and appointment to the Ambassador to Israel has turned this trend around. But the damage to the Democrat base is stunning.
