Conservative Evangelicals are supportive of Israel because they believe that is God's will and that no nation will prosper that doesn't blindly support Israel on everything. Moreover, they believe we live in the end times and that Israel will play a central role in it. So there is a difference there.
    A difference (and I will heartily agree with you) that is hugely beneficial to Israel. Slowly as it is, that's diminishing.

    How quickly things change. The days of taking evangelical support for Israel for granted are over. As they are increasingly confronted with an evangelical-friendly, anti-Israel narrative, more and more of these Christians are turning against the Jewish state.[1]

    No.

    The assertion, however, is based on 44 years of experience with US culture. In the end, most americans regardless of race, religion, or general poltical orientation; have very little knowledge about anything that does not directly impact their daily lives. Netanyahu simply does not impact the daily lives of most American jews.

    So yes.... I think one can safely make the assertion that most american jews do not know who Netanyahu is.

    I will believe it when I see it. I can't tell you how many times I have basically heard the following argument from Southern Baptists and other Evangelicals in regards to Israel:

    Oh I agree with you that it's still there. But s-l-o-w-l-y, it's waning. And the least supportive demographic is the under thirty! And they are the future.

    Because they are more politically active than the average American.

    I'll go with that while you duck and cover worrying about the smoking gun in the form of a mushroom cloud over an American city.

    Re: Do the majority of U.S. Jews support Netanyahu?

    Just because the media and talking heads simplify it to a singular question of whether Iran obtains nuclear weapons, that is NOT the only issue at all - as there is the greater question of the effects of lifting sanctions against Iran - adding tens of billions to Iran's coffers AND supporting the Iranian government.

    Iran is the #1 source of chaos and revolution all over the ME. Lifting sanctions will pour billions of dollars into that effort and empower the legitimacy of the government, which can claim it's militarism has resulted in the victory of the sanctions lifted - ie they defeated the USA on the world stage by military and disruptive actions in other countries throughout the region.

    The REAL problem with the "deal" is that is a a pro-Iran stance Obama has taken seeking ways to enrich and empower the Iranian government and Iranian expansionism. If for no other reason, the nuclear issue is a justification to continue to starve down Iran's ability to export terrorism and expand it's influence.

    Those who support the deal have to explain why they want to empower and enrich Iran's government and military, not just the nuclear issue.
