New polls show support for U.S. pressure on the Palestinians to reform their government and opposition to a freeze on Israeli settlement construction, respectively. The first poll, commissioned by the Israel Project, also found that 68 percent of U.S. elites — defined as registered voters with a college education and an interest in current events — believe it does not make sense to establish a Palestinian state that encourages terrorism. In the second poll, 61 percent of Americans say Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank should be allowed, while just 10 percent identify settlements as the main obstacle to peace.
