POLL: Israelis Certain Trump Will Be Pro-Israel

Tuesday, December 06, 2016 |  Israel Today Staff

A new survey confirms that a solid majority of Israelis believe Donald Trump will enact pro-Israel policies as the next president of the United States.
Commissioned by the Ruderman Family Foundation, the poll revealed that an overwhelming 83 percent of Israelis anticipate Trump will be a “pro-Israel president.”
That is a far different result than when Israelis were asked the same question following the election of Barack Obama in 2008.
But that doesn’t mean they think he’ll bring peace.
Just 45 percent of respondents believe Trump can succeed in negotiating a final status peace agreement between Israel and the Arabs.
Unlike with past presidents, a whopping 75 percent of the Israelis questioned said Trump won’t let the lack of a peace agreement stop him from moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem.
Regarding Iran, a 45 percent plurality of respondents said there is a possible-to-good chance Trump will tear up the Obama-brokered nuclear agreement. Israel views that agreement as a threat to its long-term security.
