(A new poll which indicates…) that 33 percent of those polled identified themselves as Republican, and 40 percent as Democratic, which suggests a sample a bit more Democratic than the norm. So this was not a GOP-tilting survey.
What the survey shows is this: The American people strongly support the state of Israel, and want their elected representatives to do so as well.
An astounding 93 percent of those polled say the United States should be concerned about the security of the state of Israel.
A majority—54 percent—say the U.S. should be “very concerned” about Israel’s security.
Virtually the same number care that their elected representatives be pro-Israel. When asked, “Would you be more likely or less likely to vote for a candidate whom you perceive as pro-Israel?,” 53 percent say they would be more likely to vote for a candidate they saw as pro-Israel, 24 percent less likely.
Even more striking, the same number—53 percent—say they could not vote for a candidate if he were anti-Israel, even if that candidate agreed with them on most other issues.
Now, I guess we hafta elect a leadership that WILL act upon our wishes…..!
