69% Oppose AIPAC’s "Israel Anti-Boycott Act" - Formerly Neutral Americans Now Oppose Curbing Israel Boycotts - 8/3/2017

Results from a comprehensive public opinion poll of 2,500 American adults fielded through Google Surveys reveal widespread opposition to the top lobbying initiative of Israel’s US lobby in America, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

Nearly seven in ten Americans oppose the "Israel Anti-Boycott Act" (H.R.1697 in the House and S.720 in the Senate) while 25.7% support the Act, and 5.2% submitted other responses. The survey had an RMSE score of 5.9% and was fielded July 24-August 1.

This is a significant change from a March 2017 poll when 62.1% of Americans neither supported nor opposed such anti-boycott laws.

Question: Congress may pass the Israel Anti-Boycott Act to punish Americans up to $1 million in fines & 20 years in prison for economic boycotts of Israel over human rights violations:
