Ugly Poll Numbers For The Palestinians
Last month, it was revealed that Hamas hired a spin doctor to try to improve their image with Americans and Europeans.
Well, if the latest Gallup Poll is on target, even if they could get their hands on the billion plus Arafat stole from the Palestinians and hire PR firms with it, it wouldn’t make much difference.
Just look at these brutal numbers:
— Only 22% of Americans say we should even have diplomatic relations with the Palestinian Authority if Hamas follows their current policy and refuses to recognize the existence of Israel.
— Only 5% of Americans say we should give financial aid to the Palestinian Authority if Hamas follows their current policy and refuses to recognize the existence of Israel.
— 59% of Americans say their sympathies lay more with the Israelis while only 15% say their sympathies are more with the Palestinians.
— 68% of Americans have a favorable view of Israel while only 11% have a favorable view of the Palestinian Authority.
— It’s also worth noting that, “Republicans (77%) are significantly more likely to sympathize with the Israelis than are Democrats (50%) or independents (50%),” which is particularly bad news for the Palestinian Authority since the GOP holds the White House and Congress.
Now those are some roadkill ugly poll numbers.
