A J Street poll published Thursday shows that 57% of U.S. Jews back a Middle East peace plan based on 1967 borders with mutually agreed-upon land swaps, while 43% opposed such a move.

According to the poll, 83% of the American Jews support a U.S.-brokered solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, while 70% want the administration to offer a peace plan that proposes set borders and security arrangements.

J Street’s poll, which was conducted in mid-July among 800 American Jews, showed nearly 47% of those polled want the U.S. to vote against recognizing a Palestinian state in the UN, as opposed to 34% who support recognition, and 18% which are hesitant of American recognition.
