38% of Voters See Better U.S.-Israeli Relations Under Trump

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this week attempted to convince President Trump to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal, one of the only major world leaders to do so. A plurality of voters thought after the 2016 election that Trump would improve relations with Israel, and many now think that has come to fruition.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 38% of Likely U.S. Voters think America’s relations with Israel have gotten better since President Trump took office. Just 20% think those relations have gotten worse, while 31% think they have stayed about the same. Another 10% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
