New Poll Shows Americans Suspicious of AIPAC Status

A new Council for the National Interest/Zogby poll shows that Americans of all backgrounds and ages strongly believe AIPAC acts as a foreign agent for the Israeli government and should be registered as a foreign agent and lose its tax exempt status.

The poll found 61% “strongly or somewhat agree” that AIPAC should be asked to register as a foreign agent and lose its tax exempt status, while only 12% strongly or somewhat disagree that it should. 27% were unsure on the issue.

A majority of people within almost every subgroup agrees. This includes 77% of 18-29 year-olds, 72% of Hispanics, and approximately two-thirds of independent voters, 50-64 year-olds, residents of the West region, Catholics, single adults, parents of children under 17, and men.

Interestingly, 15% of Jewish Americans “strongly agreed” and 15% “strongly disagreed” with the statement that AIPAC should register as an agent of a foreign government and thereby lose its tax exempt status. However, 60% were unsure. It makes me wonder, are people really unsure or have they buckled under pressure to conform?
