Poll: More Americans Sympathize With Israel

More Americans say they sympathize with Israelis than Palestinians in the current conflict in the Middle East, a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll finds.

Forty-three percent of adults say they sympathize more with Israel, 14 percent are more sympathetic toward Palestinians. But another 43 percent say they're unsure.

The poll also finds that more than six-in-10 respondents -- 62 percent -- believe that Israelis and Palestinians will not be able to form a lasting peace agreement that will work.

The NBC/WSJ/Marist poll was conducted July 28-31 of 760 adults, and it has a margin of error of plus-minus 3.6 percentage points.
