Poll: Obama Gets Thumbs Down On Treatment Of Israel

It's a Quinnipiac poll commissioned by CNN, so you know it oversamples Democrats. But the results speak for themselves:

Only a third of Americans approve of the way President Obama's handling the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, according to a new national poll.

A Quinnipiac University survey released Thursday morning indicates that 35 percent of the public gives the president a thumbs up on how he's dealing with the situation between Israel and the Palestinians, with 44 percent saying they disapprove, and just over one in five unsure. {...}

According to the poll, two-thirds of Jewish voters disapprove of how the president's handling Israeli-Palestinian relations, with 28 percent saying they approve.

I know, I know...hold an election and Zero would still probably get 50% plus of the Jewish vote. But the indications are that a lot of people, not just Jews are beginning to understand what sort of person they elected.

I have a feeling this poll and others may have led to Obama taking the time to write to to the reliably Democrat Alan Solow, the President of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations assuring him that he had no plans to impose a settlement on Israel and that 'the bond remains unbreakable.'

I regard any promise of Obama's with the proverbial grain of salt, especially if it concerns Israel. But the fact that he felt the need to do some damage control is interesting, and an indication that Zero's support among Jews is slipping fast.

please helps me write more gooder!

Given the woefully one sided media coverage against Israel, I find it remarkable that this many Americans still support Israel. Perhaps Americans are smart enough to see through media propaganda.
