U.S. support for Israel is at an all-time high in the wake of the attack by Palestinian terrorists on Israel.
The latest Quinnipiac University Poll, which started asking the question in 2001, finds that U.S. voters support Israel at 61 percent to the 13 percent for support for the so-called Palestinians.
Quinnipiac: Voters were asked whether their sympathies lie more with the Israelis or more with the Palestinians.

Per Just the News:
The poll released Tuesday also shows that 72% of voters say Hamas was responsible for the latest outbreak of violence, while 10% blame Israel, 6% say both share blame and 12% would not say.
However, when broken down by age and race, sympathy decreases for Israelis and increases for Palestinians.
Israel is receiving significantly more sympathy than just two years ago, when it was at an all-time low. While 41% of registered voters said in May 2021 that their sympathies lie with the Israelis, 30% said the Palestinians.
The latest poll showed that 41% of people ages 18-34 said their sympathies lie with Israelis while 26% said the Palestinians. Meanwhile, 36% of black Americans and 52% of Hispanic Americans said their sympathies lie with the Israelis, compared to 35% and 21%, respectively, who said their sympathies are with the Palestinians. The remaining percentage of voters said they didn’t know.
The poll was conducted Oct. 12–16 of 1,552 registered voters and has a 2.5% margin of error.
