Poll: American Favorability Toward Israel at 66%
Gallup – PRINCETON, NJ — The slight majority of Americans, 53%, now hold an unfavorable view of Egypt and 40% a favorable view. That is the most negative tilt in Americans’ views of Egypt since Gallup began measuring favorability toward the country in this format in 1991.
After surpassing 70% in 2012 for only the third time in Gallup trends, favorability toward Israel fell back to 66% this year, similar to the level in 2010 and 2011. Americans’ views toward Israel have been largely positive since 1996; however, the precise percentage viewing the country favorably has shown a good deal of fluctuation — between 54% and 71%.
