via Evangelical Support for Israel Declining, Especially Among Millennials: Survey

Support for Israel is decreasing among evangelical Christians, particularly among younger generations, a new survey shows, a decline borne out of confusion about or indifference to the world’s only Jewish state.

Seventy-seven percent of evangelicals ages 65 and older say they support the existence, security and prosperity of Israel, according to a LifeWay Research survey released Monday. Only 58 percent of evangelicals ages 18 to 34 say the same.

The survey was conducted using a web-based utility, a probability-based panel designed to be representative of the American population, measuring the attitudes of 2,002 evangelicals pertaining to Israel from Sept. 20–28.

“For the most part, younger evangelicals are indifferent about Israel,” said Scott McConnell, executive director of LifeWay Research.
