Facebook Users Support the US-Israel Relationship More Than They Believe in Global Warming

Facebook has a new US politics section that includes "debate groups" with polls of facebook users.

One such poll asked this question: "Should the United States continue its close alliance with Israel?"

74% of respondents said yes. 5, 618 people have voiced their opinion. The vast majority of them are 18 to 24 years old.

A minority of those who answered yes also answered that the US should forge closer ties with "Palestine."

The poll indicates that while anti-Israel activists are very loud (including their many facebook groups), young people aren't convinced. A diverse group of young Americans: Democrats, Republicans, Jews, non-Jews, supports the close alliance between the US and Israel.

It's interesting to note that very few issues have such support.

In another facebook poll respondents were asked if global warming is real. 71% of respondents said "Global Warming is a proven phenomenon." 29% said it isn't.

Apparently facebook users believe in a close US-Israel alliance more than they believe in Global Warming.
