The Pew Research Center poll released Thursday found that 61 percent of Israelis "express confidence in the American president to do the right thing regarding world affairs," as opposed to 15 percent of Palestinians.
Obama's numbers numbers among Israelis are a 12 point increase over when the same question was asked in 2011.
Notably, the poll follows Obama's visit in March, in which he emphasized Israel's security needs and the Jewish connection to the region while pressing for a revival of the peace process.
