Poll: 69% Oppose AIPAC Bill That Would Criminally Outlaw Boycotting Israel
A new poll found 69% of Americans oppose a bill pushed by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and backed by 48 Senators that would make boycotting the state of Israel a crime punishable by up to a $1 million fine and 20 years in prison.
Results from a comprehensive public opinion poll of 2,500 American adults fielded through Google Surveys reveal widespread opposition to the top lobbying initiative of Israel’s US lobby in America, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
Question: Congress may pass the Israel Anti-Boycott Act to punish Americans up to $1 million in fines & 20 years in prison for economic boycotts of Israel over human rights violations.
Nearly seven in ten Americans oppose the “Israel Anti-Boycott Act” (H.R.1697 in the House and S.720 in the Senate) while 25.7% support the Act, and 5.2% submitted other responses. The survey had an RMSE score of 5.9% and was fielded July 24-August 1.
This is a significant change from a March 2017 poll when 62.1% of Americans neither supported nor opposed such anti-boycott laws.
While Trump’s every last associate is being investigated for possibly being influenced by Russia, the influence of the Israel lobby is not to be questioned.
Take a look at 48 Senators who are backing this bill.
Chuck Schumer, Lindsey Graham, Richard Blumenthal, Ron Wyden, Ben Sasse, Jeff Flake, Turncoat Thom Tillis, these are some of the most hysterical Senators blathering on and on about Russian influence. The hypocrisy is off the charts.
