The poll also reveals that 36% of respondents feel Australia is less safe due to the ongoing turmoil, while 32% disagree, and an additional 32% remain uncertain.
Conducted among 1602 eligible voters from November 1-5, the survey delves into public sentiments regarding Australia's role in the conflict.
When asked about supporting either side, 31% expressed support for Israel, while only 7% leaned towards Palestine.
