Poll: Just 40% of Americans support creation of Palestinian state, down from 58% in 2003

The survey also indicates that politics no longer stops at the water’s edge. Two-thirds of all Republicans oppose U.N. membership for the Palestinians compared to just 41 percent of Democrats. There are also gender and generational differences on this issue, with men and people over 50 years old more likely to oppose U.N. membership for the Palestinians.
