Poll: 50% of US Adults Say Israel ‘Gone Too Far’ in War on Gaza
Half of US adults now believe Israel’s military offensive has gone beyond what it should have, according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Monitoring: That’s up from 40 percent in an AP-NORC poll conducted in November. The poll also shows 31 percent of US adults approve of President Joe Biden’s handling of the war on Gaza.
The survey shows about half of US adults are “extremely or very concerned” the war will lead to a broader conflict in the Middle East.
The US has become increasingly isolated in its support of Israel as the Palestinian death toll has risen above 27,100 with two-thirds of the victims women and children.
Fracture lines are growing in Biden’s Democratic base with some key voting blocs he will likely need if he’s going to win a second term unhappy with his handling of the conflict.
Israel started its military aggression against Gaza on October 7, 2023 following an operation by the territory's resistance groups, dubbed Operation Al-Aqsa Storm.
Since the beginning of the war on Gaza, the US has been Israel's biggest ally, providing it with thousands of arms consignments. Washington, which has backed Tel Aviv's ferocious attacks as a means of "self-defense", has also been casting its veto against the UN Security Council resolutions that called on the occupying regime to cease its aggression./Fars News
