A new Reuters/Ipsos poll reveals that 68% of Americans believe Israel “should call a ceasefire and try to negotiate” with Hamas, indicating widespread opposition to continued military operations in Gaza. This viewpoint was shared by approximately three-quarters of Democrats and half of Republicans, demonstrating broad public support for de-escalation.
When asked what role the United States should play in the conflict, just 32% of respondents believed that “the U.S. should support Israel.” This figure represents a substantial drop from the 41% who expressed support for Israel in a previous Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted just a month earlier in mid-October.
Meanwhile, just 31% of respondents support the idea of sending weapons to Israel, while 43% oppose it. Support for sending weapons was particularly strong among Republicans, while roughly half of Democrats were against it.
