Israel’s attack on Gaza diminished its support among Democratic voters

A new University of Maryland Critical Issues Poll shows that Israel’s recent attack on Gaza hurt its reputation among Democratic voters, particularly young Democratic voters. Almost 70% of Democratic voters, who know where their local lawmakers stand on the issue, now say that their congressional representatives support Israel more than they do.

3,379 American adults were surveyed on the conflict between June 22 to July 21. The post-attack shift becomes immediately evident when the new numbers are compared against a similar poll that the group carried out in August of 2020.

The 2020 poll found that 13.1% of Democrats wanted the United States government to favor the Palestinians and 10.4% wanted Israel to be favored. In the new poll 17.9% want the U.S. to back the Palestinians and just 9.5% want the government to learn toward Israel.
