Poll: 82% of Israelis Glad Obama is Visiting Israel
A new poll released by Israel’s Channel 2 shows that a large majority of Israelis are supportive of U.S. President Barack Obama’s visit to Israel, while most questions surrounding the leader of the free world are otherwise divisive.
According to the poll 82% of respondents want Obama to visit Israel. A smaller percentage, 63.5%, believe that Obama’s policies are in the interest of promoting the state of Israel, while a third of all respondents believe that his policies are anti-Israel.
41% of respondents came to a more general conclusion that Obama is simply not a friend of Israel, while a much smaller percentage, 22%, do think he is a friend of the Jewish state. 36% think he does not appreciate the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, and 29% responded that he is a great leader of both the U.S and the world.
