It’s to the point that anything that could be construed as a net positive for the U.S. is vilified and condemned by Democrats and other far-leftists. Even when it comes to foreign policy and which countries the U.S. supports, the left will pick the side that is more extreme nine and a half times out of 10.

Now, according to a recent survey taken by Gallup, more Democrats support Palestine over Israel for the first time ever.

Almost half (49 percent) of Democrats support Palestine, 32 percent of independents support Palestine — which isn’t a majority, but is an all-time high since Gallup began taking this survey in 2001 — and Republicans (shocker) remained incredibly steady at 78 percent support for Israel.

Gallup reported:

As a result of this year’s partisan shifts, sympathy toward the Palestinians among U.S. adults is at a new high of 31%, while the proportion not favoring a side is at a new low of 15%. The 54% of Americans sympathizing more with the Israelis is similar to last year’s 55% but is the lowest since 2005.

The resulting 23-point gap in Americans’ sympathy for Israel versus the Palestinians represents Israel’s slimmest advantage on this question in Gallup’s World Affairs poll trend. It is also the first time Israel has not enjoyed a better than 2-to-1 advantage over the Palestinians in Americans’ sympathies.

Another factor that statistics don’t take into account is the society that we currently live in. If sometimes it feels like we’re living in opposite world, that’s because we pretty much do. Whatever one side loves, the other automatically hates and vice versa. Rarely anymore do we see objective takes on matters without even a hint of bias.

Things like that could be a prevailing reason for the change in support among some Democrats. Just food for thought.
