Support By Party (US) of Israel & Palestinians

Here is an interesting post from Daniel Pipes regarding the disparity of support for the Israelis vs. support for the Palestinians by party affiliation in the US. It's hardly a surprise, but it's still very, very sad to see it all graphed out and researched like this and confirms what many of us have already suspected:

Pipes:
It's hardly news that Republicans view Israel more favorably than do Democrats – I wrote about this pattern in 2000 in "The Friendly Republicans" and have even speculated (in "Arabs and Jews Sorting Themselves Out Politically in the United States?") that Jews will eventually settle in the Republican party. But now the Gallup Poll provides more detailed proof than ever before about the calibrations of American attitudes toward the Jewish state. In an article titled "Republicans and Religious Americans Most Sympathetic to Israel," Frank Newport and Joseph Carroll establish its nearly linear quality from right to left. Here are replies to the question, "In the Middle East situation, are your sympathies more with the Israelis or more with the Palestinians?"
