A Well of Good Will

Public Opinion Strategies finds a "well of good will" for Israel in the United States. Fifty-seven to 9 percent, Americans sympathize with Israel over the Arab nations.

Interestingly, though -- if not exactly surprisingly -- that support falls to 50-12 among independents and 43-12 among Democrats. (It's an astounding 83-1 among Republicans.)

The Democrats might not quite be there yet, but they're on their way toward being the anti-Israel party. They're already the weak-on-defense-and-Israel party, so it won't be a long fall.
