(CNN) - Despite recent media reports on growing tension between President Barack Obama and his Jewish supporters, a new Gallup poll Tuesday indicates a majority of Jewish Americans still approve of the president.
Gallup found no major shift in the group's view toward Obama since the president's May Mideast speech, when he said an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement should include a return to Israel's 1967 borders with mutually agreed upon land swaps.
His comments were met with negative reactions from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and many high profile American supporters of Israel.
But in the month and a half before the May 19 speech, 65 percent of Jewish Americans approved of Obama, while 62 percent approved of him in the same time period after. And of the more than 300 Jewish Democrats interviewed by Gallup in each period, 86 percent approved prior to the speech while 85 percent approved afterward.
Gallup was unable to determine a more immediate impact on Jewish American views at the time of the speech but says the change on a monthly basis reflects similar trends in Obama's approval ratings by all Americans.
Results are based on more than 500 telephone interviews with Jewish American adults, with a sampling error margin of plus or minus six percentage points. The monthly averages reported are based on numbers tracked from January 2009 through June 2011.
