As Israel increasingly relies on US evangelicals for support, younger ones are walking away: What polls showShibley Telhami analyzes survey data showing younger American evangelicals being less supportive of the U.S. leaning towards Israel over the Palestinians.www.brookings.edu
But a new survey commissioned by University for North Carolina at Pembroke researchers, carried out by Barna Group, has exposed what we have been finding for some time: younger evangelicals are much less supportive of Israel than older evangelicals, by a widening margin. The poll found a dramatic shift in attitudes between 2018 and 2021: support for Israel among young evangelicals dropped from 75% to 34%. This raises questions about the sustainability of the strong evangelical support for Israel that the Israeli right has cultivated for years and that proved reliable during the Trump administration.
