Voters Show Little Enthusiasm for Boycotting Israel

Support by several prominent new Democratic members of the House has raised the profile of the effort to punish Israel economically for its treatment of the Palestinians, but few voters are ready to join in.

Just 20% of Likely U.S. Voters favor the effort calling for boycott, disinvestment and sanctions against Israel over the Palestinian issue. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 41% are opposed, but nearly as many (39%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
