Poll: 50% of Americans think military aid to Israel should be restricted

New polling from the 2021 Chicago Council Survey found that 50% of Americans want the U.S. to restrict military aid to Israel. The survey also shows that a majority of Democrats want it restricted.

The survey, which was conducted in July, shows that there’s still a sizable partisan split on the issue. 62% of Democrats think Israel should “prohibit its use in military operations against Palestinians.” 32% are opposed to such an idea. With Republicans it’s almost the exact opposite: 32% are in favor of restrictions and 61% oppose them.

The study also indicates that there’s a growing acceptance for a one-state solution in the region. 56% of Americans said an independent Palestinian state on the West Bank and Gaza was acceptable, while 60% said a “one-state solution in which Israelis and Palestinians are treated as equal citizens” was acceptable.
