Gallup poll: US public support for Israel not hurt by Iran flap

Despite the current tension between the White House and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, US support for Israel is at near record levels, according to a Gallup Poll released on Monday.

According to the poll, seven in 10 Americans continue to view Israel favorably, and there has been no significant change in that number from a year ago, before the brouhaha over Netanyahu’s speech to Congress.

The poll, conducted February 8-11 among a random sample of 837 adults, found that 70% of Americans said they view Israel favorably (compared to 72% at the same time last year), and 62% say they sympathize more with Israel than the Palestinians (the same figure as last year).
