认同 vs 拥护

1. 认同 can mean "to identify (with...)", "to associate or regard (someone) as having strong links with...". 拥护 does not have this meaning.

2. 认同 and 拥护 can both mean "to endorse". The difference is that the object of 拥护 is more specific -- it's usually a leader, political group, policy or measure. Examples:
- 这次事件以后,拥护总统的人越来越少。 After this incident, fewer and fewer people supported the president.
- 他的政治主张得到了大家的拥护。His political views get everyone's support.
The object of 认同 is more general -- one's opinions, points of view, etc.
