Americans Overwhelmingly Support Israel but 20 Percent Support Hamas

A new Harvard CAPS-Harris poll has found that most Americans support Israel over Hamas, but it also found that 20 percent of Americans support Hamas. The number of Hamas supporters is even higher when you look specifically at young people.

What is going on here?

The Hill reports:

Vast majority of voters back Israel over Hamas: Poll

An overwhelming majority of voters say they support Israel over Hamas in their ongoing war, according to a poll released Monday.

The Harvard CAPS-Harris poll found that 80 percent of respondents said they supported Israel over Hamas in the conflict, compared to 20 percent who said they sided with Hamas more.

That level of support for Israel has essentially remained unchanged since last month, when a similar poll found 81 percent of respondents saying they supported Israel more.

In the latest Harvard CAPS-Harris poll, support for Israel and Hamas was more divided among respondents aged 18-24, with 57 percent of that cohort saying they supported Israel more and 43 percent saying they supported Hamas more.

But the divide in support between Israel and Hamas grows more stark the older the respondent gets, according to the poll. Among respondents aged 25-34, 70 percent say they support Israel, while 30 percent said they supported Hamas.

When respondents 65 and older weighed in, 93 percent said they supported Israel, while 7 percent said they backed Hamas.

As we have pointed out repeatedly, the progressive ideology that divides everyone into oppressors or oppressed has much to do with this. It also explains why younger people are more apt to side against Israel.

The results are still disturbing, however. The kids are not alright.
