A Gallup poll released on Tuesday found a surge in American support for Israel that hasn't been seen since the early 1990s.

According to the poll, some 74 percent of Americans view Israel favorably: 83 percent of Republicans and 64 percent of Democrats.


"As the Trump administration prepares to move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and is reportedly finalizing its broader Middle East peace plan, Americans' stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is as strongly pro-Israel as at any time in Gallup's three-decade trend," wrote senior Gallup editor Lydia Saad.

However, a favorable view of the Palestinian Authority was recorded among 27 percent of Democrats, with only 12 percent of Republicans expressing a favorable view and 21 percent of Independents.


Overall, 64 percent of those polled said they sympathized more with Israel, whereas 19 percent said they sympathize more with the Palestinians.

Almost 90 percent of Republicans said they have a more favorable view of Israel, with just 49 percent of Democrats saying the same.

A 2017 Pew Institute report showed that Republican support for Israel is at a record high, though support among Democrats is declining. The Gallup poll showed stronger numbers than the Pew report.
