Poll: Americans Oppose Palestinian Authority Unilateral UN Moves
Buzzfeed – American voters oppose a U.N. resolution in favor of a Palestinian state in the absence of deal between the two parties, according to a poll funded by The Israel Project and shared with BuzzFeed Wednesday morning.
According to the poll, which was conducted on election night by Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg and before the current conflict in Gaza erupted, 69% of respondents support a two-state solution, but 57% oppose a U.N.-brokered Palestinian state. Only 27%percent support a unilateral declaration of independence. Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas will appear at the U.N. in New York tomorrow for the vote on whether to raise the Palestinians’ status to “non-member observer state.”
