Survey Finds Most Democrats View Israel’s Actions in Gaza as Genocidal Toward Palestinians

Most young Americans think Israel should be 'ended

As the US prepares for elections, the Democratic Party is changing, particularly in its approach to the Israel-Hamas conflict, with a growing generational divide, internal dissent, and evolving diplomatic efforts.

A recent poll conducted by Zeteo and Data For Progress revealed that a majority of Democratic voters perceive Israel’s actions in Gaza as constituting genocide. The survey, conducted over a week in April with 1,265 potential voters, found that nearly 40% of likely voters and over 50% of Democrats believe Israel is committing genocide in Gaza.

The Israel-Hamas conflict, sparked by Hamas’s October 7 attack in southern Israel, has seen Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) operations in Gaza aimed at dismantling Hamas control and securing the release of Israeli hostages.

Now, over six months into the conflict, the poll indicates a split among American voters regarding Israel’s actions in Gaza, with opinions divided on whether the IDF’s operations amount to genocide. While 39% of respondents view the IDF’s actions as genocidal, 38% disagree. Among Democrats, 56% perceive Israel’s actions as genocidal.

The poll also highlights generational and ethnic disparities in opinion, with younger demographics (under 45) and Black and Latino voters showing relatively strong support for the perception of genocide in Gaza.

On the issue of a ceasefire, a majority of those surveyed (70%) advocate for an immediate and permanent cessation of hostilities in Gaza. Democrats express even stronger support for a ceasefire, with 83% backing the idea, compared to 56% of Republicans.

Regarding the effectiveness of Israel’s military campaign in securing the release of hostages held by Hamas, a majority of voters (53%) believe it has been ineffective.

Furthermore, the survey reveals a remarkable portion of support for limiting U.S. arms sales to Israel, with over a third of respondents in favor. Additionally, a majority (54%) support suspending all U.S. arms to Israel as long as it blocks American humanitarian aid from reaching Gaza.

Lastly, opinions vary on recent pro-Palestinian demonstrations and encampments across U.S. campuses, with 40% of respondents approving and 42% disapproving. However, a majority of Democrats (55%) and younger demographics (59%) take a stance favoring free speech regarding these protests.
