A survey shows that Jewish Israelis rank Barack Obama as the “worst” U.S. president in relation to Israel in the last 30 years -- 63% of Israelis put Obama in the “worst” category while 16% rated Jimmy Carter as the second “worst” president.

The survey was conducted by Panels Politics in Tel Aviv, and the results were published in the Jewish Journal.

In the survey, Israelis were asked to identify the “best for Israel” U.S. president of the last 30 years, and the “worst for Israel”  U.S. president. These included Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barak Obama.

In a survey just before the 2012 presidential election, Panels Politics found that 47% of Jewish Israelis viewed Barack Obama as “pro-Palestinian; 24% said “neutral; and 21% said “pro-Israel.”

In 2015, however, 60% of respondents said the Obama administration was “pro-Palestinian,” and only 9% said it was “pro-Israel.”

For the Jewish Israelis who identified as religious, 81% said Obama was “pro-Palestinian.”
