That’s the percentage of Americans who favor putting more pressure on Palestinians than the Israelis amid the stalled Middle East peace process, according to Gallup.
That compared with 25 percent who said the U.S. should put more pressure on the Israelis, according to the survey, which was conducted Feb. 7-10.
President Barack Obama left last night for Israel in his first trip there since taking office. Obama also plans to visit the West Bank and Jordan.
About one-third of Israelis described Obama’s attitude toward Israel as favorable, compared with 38 percent who said he’s hostile to the nation, according to a survey mentioned in this story by Bloomberg’s Margaret Talev and Jonathan Ferziger.
