Following Obama's visit, poll reveals Israelis have new, positive view on the US president's political leanings yet still believe he is not 'pro-Israel'; Democrats, Republicans alike are pleased with this result.
Both Democrats and Republicans expressed satisfaction over the weekend with the results of a Smith Research poll published in Friday’s Jerusalem Post about how Israelis see the administration of US President Barack Obama.
The poll, which was picked up by wire services and made news around the world, found that the percentage of Israelis who consider the Obama administration more pro- Palestinian than pro-Israel fell by a whopping 20 percent since another survey taken just before the visit.
