Some 42 percent of American Jews say Trump is favoring Israelis more than the Palestinians, while 47 percent of them say he has been striking the right balance between the two.

Meanwhile, 59 percent of US Christians say Trump has been striking the right balance between the Israelis and Palestinians, while only 26 percent say the president is favoring Israelis more than the Palestinians.

Within the Christian demographic, 62 percent of Protestants say Trump has been striking the right balance between the two groups, while 51 percent of Catholics say it is the same. Seventy-two percent of Evangelicals say the president has struck the right balance.
