Obama Losing US Jewish Support for Israel Policies


American Jewish support for the Obama administrations policies vis a vis Israel are dropping rapidly. While 49% of U.S. Jews still approve of the Obama administration's handling of U.S.-Israel relations, 45% now disapprove, according to a new American Jewish Committee survey of 800 respondents conducted Aug. 31-Oct. 5. An earlier AJC earlier survey conducted in March found that 55% approved and 37% disapproved.

In contrast, 62% approve how Prime Minister Netanyahu is handling U.S.-Israel relations, while 27% disapprove. This is up from March, when 57% approved and 30% disapproved.
