I've Been Thinking:
The Israel Project, an Israel advocacy group headquartered in Washington D.C., commissioned an interesting survey.
The results were revealing.
The poll was conducted jointly by Public Opinion Strategies and Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research. These two polling organizations cover the political spectrum, one is routinely hired by the left and the other by the right.
True to form the Israel Project had most of the questions focus on America and then slipped in some questions on Israel and terror related issues.
19% of Americans believe the Israeli Palestinian issue should be a priority for the new President.
6% believe that the US should stand strongly behind the Palestinians, while 66% said that they believe the US should stand behind Israel.
66% said that they are deeply concerned about Iran as a nuclear threat.
72% said that despite all the other issues that the US is currently confronting Iran should still be on the top of the agenda of the new president's list of priorities.
What do we learn from this survey?
The most telling part of this survey is that, across the board, the pendulum has not really swung.
The priorities of Americans prior to the presidential election are the priorities of Americans following the election.
There has been no real change.
