WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - Americans' support for Israel in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is still widespread but it has dropped for the first time in a decade, a new Gallup poll revealed on Wednesday.

"The majority of Americans remain partial toward Israel in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, with 59 percent saying they sympathize more with the Israelis whereas 21 percent sympathize more with the Palestinians," Gallup said in a report of its findings. "While still widespread, sympathy toward Israel is down from 64 percent in 2018 and marks the lowest percentage favoring Israel since 2009."
