Look What Happens to Dem Voters When They Learn the Truth About Israel

Many American voters who support some form of peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority may do so because they lack a deep understanding of the Middle East conflict.

This interpretation stems from an analysis of online polling data conducted by Gideon300 and RMG Research.

In March, these organizations surveyed 1,000 registered voters, posing four straightforward questions.

First, respondents were asked, “Do you support or oppose the U.S. encouraging Israel to negotiate a peace agreement with the Palestinian Authority?”

A majority of those surveyed, 55 percent, either somewhat or strongly supported such encouragement, while only 23 percent somewhat or strongly opposed it. Another 22 percent were unsure.

Secondly, the pollsters inquired, “Would you characterize the Palestinian Authority as more extreme, more moderate, or about the same as Hamas?”

About one-third of respondents (31 percent) admitted to being unsure about the relative extremism of these groups. A slightly larger proportion (35 percent) viewed the Palestinian Authority as more moderate than Hamas, while 27 percent saw them as “essentially the same,” and 7 percent oddly considered Hamas less extreme.

The third question asked, “If you were aware that the Palestinian Authority (PA) intended to establish a unity government with Hamas, including granting cabinet positions to Hamas members, supporting Hamas financially, and that 82% of PA supporters endorsed the October 7 terrorist attacks by Hamas, would you agree that the Palestinian Authority and Hamas are part of the same terrorist entity?”

Over half of the respondents, 56 percent, believed that if the PA pursued a unity government with Hamas, it would signify a very close connection between the two. Approximately a quarter (27 percent) were unsure, and 17 percent disagreed.

Finally, the pollsters revealed that the hypothetical scenario presented in the third question was, in reality, true.

“In fact, the Palestinian Authority (PA) does intend to form a unity government with Hamas, including granting cabinet positions to Hamas members, supporting Hamas financially, and 82% of PA supporters endorse the October 7 terrorist attacks by Hamas,” the survey stated. “Given this information, do you support or oppose the U.S. encouraging Israel to negotiate a peace agreement with the Palestinian Authority?”

This time, the responses differed significantly from the initial question. Now, only 30 percent somewhat or strongly supported such encouragement, with strong support dropping from 27 percent to 10 percent.

Additionally, 46 percent now somewhat or strongly opposed the U.S. encouraging such a deal, with strong opposition rising from 10 percent to 25 percent — nearly mirroring the initial strong support.

A news release from Gideon300 provided a breakdown of the data by political affiliation, revealing that Democrats shifted from 73 percent supporting a peace agreement to only 43 percent after being informed of the Hamas-PA ties.

Independent voters also changed their stance significantly, dropping from 47 percent supporting a ceasefire initially to 28 percent after becoming better informed.

Even Republican support for a potential peace deal halved, from 38 to 19 percent, upon learning the true nature of the Hamas-PA relationship.

“This data shows that voters overwhelmingly oppose any proposal that would compel Israel to negotiate with terrorists or their supporters,” remarked Matthew Faraci, president of Gideon300, in the news release. “Initially, a slight majority favored the U.S. brokering a deal involving the Palestinian Authority. However, after learning about the PA’s alignment with Hamas, voters dramatically shifted their opinion, and ultimately, a strong majority across all parties opposed such a deal.

“The most significant change is among Democrats, who swung a remarkable 30 points, but there is also considerable movement among Independents and Republicans,” Faraci added in the statement. “Politicians from both parties should look beyond the noise and take note of data that reveals the true public sentiment on this issue.”

According to RMG Research, the poll has a margin of error of +/-3.1 percent at a 95 percent confidence level.
