A new poll, conducted by US news network CNN, has found that 67 percent of Americans express sympathy for Israel rather than the Palestinians, whereas only 16% expressed sympathy for the Palestinians over Israelis.

A similar poll conducted in 2009 showed a smaller gap; at that time, 60% of the polled Americans said they sided with Israel versus 17% sympathizing with the Palestinians.
