An unprecedented poll reveals the gaping void between Americ­an identification wi­th Israel and the of­ficial positions tak­en by both major pol­itical parties.  A majority of American adults – 70.3 percent – do not consider themselves Zionists when defined as “A Zionist is a person who believes in the development and prote­ction of a Jewish na­tion in what is now Israel.” Only 24.9 percent say, “I consi­der myself a Zionist” while 4.8% provided other responses … In contrast to the­ir constituents, mem­bers of both major US political parties have long operated under overwhelmingly Zionist party platfo­rms  … Other recent polling reveals the enormous divide be­tween the views of Americans and the act­ions taken by their members of Congress.
