Americans continue to view Israelis far more favorably than Palestinians, according to a poll released this weekend ahead of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's meeting Monday with US President Barack Obama.

Seventy-one percent of Americans said they had positive views of Israel, compared with just 19 percent who said the same of the Palestinians, according to a Gallup poll conducted over the first week of February.

Republicans were more likely to be well-disposed toward Israel than independents or Democrats, with favorability ratings at 80, 71 and 65 percent respectively.
