The author analyzes the results of a survey conducted among 1,000 likely American voters in 2004. He argues that based on the data, American voters, regardless of party affiliation, ideology, and religion, believe that Israel has the right to protect itself with defensible borders. According to the author's analysis, American voters do not trust the Palestinian Authority in any future agreement to protect the freedom of religion for all faiths. Moreover, he concludes that based on the polling numbers, there is across-the-board support for Jerusalem remaining united under Israeli sovereignty.
