Skip to comments.A Snapshot of the American Jewish Electorate: 2011 Political Survey [Not a Poll]
Posted on 05/08/2011 6:36:23 PM PDT by justiceseeker93
This political survey was intended to provide a snapshot of Jewish voters. It offers some interesting insights into the depth and intensity of Jewish political engagement, but by the nature of this study it does not permit one to make any defining conclusions.
Further, the findings confirm that from this particular cohort (some 2300 participants), Jews hold deeply embedded policy positions on key domestic and international issues. In this particular study one finds a distinctive Jewish conservative voice emerging on Israel related matters and an array of domestic social issues. [Bold added for emphasis by poster.] The data also suggests that among highly engaged Jews, those who are active within Jewish religious and communal life, there is a sharp divide on political attitudes and policies. This liberal-conservative split models the current political landscape of the country. The intensity of this political and social disconnect could also be seen in the additional comments offered by many participants to this survey... These messages in many ways confirmed the findings of Frank Luntz and others who have written about the growing presence of angry American voters. The focus of many of these commentaries negatively depicted the "other" voting group (namely, liberals offering viewpoints on conservatives or conservatives providing comments about liberals).

Are they having buyers remorse?

I swear, I only clicked once.
The figures are summed in a very unhelpful way, always summing party affiliation and not total support or opposition on a specific issue. You have to kind of do that in your head looking at each chart. Very weird. I know their point was to show the differences in opinion between R and D Jewish voters, but I’d also like to see the total support/opposition to each question.
Anyway, looking over these figures the so-called “Republicans” don’t seem all that conservative. They support gun-grabbing, baby-killing and MengeleCare... the last being extremely disappointing considering their historical association with such government-run “health care” systems.
No doubt that Obama will lose some US Jews in ‘012.
Instead of 77%, he will only get 65% of the Jewish vote this time.
I wonder if the exit polls understate the Jewish population in the so-called “red states”, leading to an overestimate of their support for DemocRATS?
Some undoubtedly are, because the % of Jewish voters going for Obama next year will likely be no more than 60%, and that's being generous to him.
The record of southern democrats has been completely forgotten by them.. especially the blacks.. There must be something wrong with Jewish and american black cultures..
No sir Graybeard58,
I’d bet he farm the majority of American Jews vote for obummer again if he runs.
77% of the chickens are still voting for Colonel Saunders...
I think you are touching on a very significant factor there. Almost all this polling is done by left-leaning organizations. They probably extrapolate nationally from just a few big city 'rat strongholds. It's a lot cheaper that way, but scientifically sloppy. And I'm pretty sure, because of cultural differences, they would underweigh Orthodox and recent Russian Jews in their sampling, both of which have tended to vote GOP in recent presidential elections.
But remember what I said in post #1: the posted survey is of self-selected respondents and shouldn't be thought of as a poll.
Id bet he farm the majority of American Jews vote for obummer again if he runs
Paraphrasing J.C. Watts’ father: ‘A [Jewish] man voting for a Democrat is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders.’
Strange times indeed when Jews keep voting for the very party that is bringing Nazism back to life. Thankfully, many are waking up from their cultural dreaming and putting down the utopian crack pipe.
When it comes to voting, Jews are an enigma.
Any study or poll that says they vote less than 90% RAT is suspect.
Then it always seems to turn out that Black Support has plummeted to a "super low 95.8%." A great Republican candidate might pull 35% of the "Jewish Vote," maybe. The many Jews and Blacks who are conservative, honorable people in their private lives, will, and have voted for the very Democrats who openly despise their personal values.
They are on automatic pilot in the voting booth. It is a mystery of the Universe.
Obama could nuke Tel Aviv and still get 60% of the US Jewish vote.
Sometimes I think that if Yasser Arafat ran as a Democrat, he’d get 90% of the Jewish vote. I’m pretty sure it’s not even worth discussing the conservative or Republican Jewish vote. I’ve been hopeful before, but like Charlie Brown and Lucy, disappointed every time.
My understanding is that religiously observant Jews, esp. Orthodox, are FAR more conservative than the “Secular” Jews that are Jewish by heritage, but haven’t likely set foot in a Temple in 30 years.
I think the problem is two-fold. First, you have the “minority” component, and then you have the (incorrect) notion that the Nazis were right wing, and therefore, Republicans who are also right wing are obviosuly close to Nazis.
Rush said the WH internal polling shows Zero as Toast in 2012.
There will always be a minority that has not bent the knee to Baal.
Obama could order beheadings of Jews on live TV.
90% of the Jewish sheep to the slaughter will still fund and vote for the anti-semite democrats and their Czar/President.
Sounds to me like nothing much has changed. The slavish devotion to DemocRATS (read Obama) by the Jewish voters astounds me.
BOOM.. BOOM.. BOOM... Boom..
BANG.. BAng.. BAng... BANG..
Yamuka.. Yamuka.. Yamuka.. Yamuka..
The last Republican to win the Jewish vote was Harding in 1920 with 43% in a three way race. The next best showing was 39% for Reagan in 1980.
There are sectors of the American Jewish community who have always been conservative; especially Hasidim and the more fully committed Orthodox.
I've had it with democrat Jews.... they are enemies..
Lamenting this phenomonon one evening, I finally got some Jewish Conservative guy here at FR to explain it to me at long last - something about their Eastern European history or something. It almost made sense at the time, but only if I adopted the unspoken proviso that these people are just incredibly stupid when it comes to politics, as are the Blacks.
When I assign any brain cells to the conundrum at all, they keep coming up with some sort of poorly formulated insight having to do with a lemming-like tribal mindset. Can’t figure it out, really - just another enigmatic mental disorder with a hopeless prognosis.
Drives ya nuts, doesn't it? It's due to 1930's "anti-fascist" propaganda originating in the Soviet Union. The sad fact of the matter, which I advise you to never bring up in polite conversation if you ever want to eat lunch in this town again, is that the membership of the CPUSA was heavily Jewish. And damn few quit when Hitler and Stalin signed their non-Aggression Pact!
Can that be considered an oxymoron? (ABsolutely baffling)
Yes, I'm aware of that but was unaware of how many liberal Jews there were until the last election. It is not in the best interest of Israel to vote for liberals but that seems to be an unimportant issue to the liberal Jewish Americans.
I'm a conservative Baptist man, raised from childhood to believe that those who bless Israel will be blessed by God and those who curse Israel may expect to be accursed of God. Liberals do not have the best interest of Israel at heart, to say the least.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
I will be visiting my (Jewish) relatives in the NYC area in a couple of weeks and will be very interested to see if their views have changed at all in the past few months. As a conservative, I’m definitely one of the black sheep of the family (but not the only one), and I have often had to bite my tongue so hard at family gatherings that it nearly drew blood. My mom, however, cannot stand Obama - she genuinely thinks he’s a Communist, and I quite agree. She traveled to Israel last year for the first time, and reported back that the anti-Obama sentiment is almost universal. They cannot understand how Americans could be so stupid, especially American Jews.
You'll find that except for the real radicals (who have a very self-serving agenda), most of them don't know very much about American politics, political history, economics, and economic history. Unfortunately, there is particularly great ignorance about Franklin D. Roosevelt, his somewhat subtle antisemitism (including his refusal to admit a shipload of German Jewish refugees desperately trying to escape Nazism), and his role in extending the Great Depression. Roosevelt has been built into a false icon through the generations in too many Jewish families, which serves as a phony basis for a continued loyalty to the 'Rat party.
I'm very well aware of the anti-Obama sentiment in Israel. Even in the 2008 election, before he had any influence on Middle East policy, Americans abroad in Israel voted about 75% for McCain. It's a different world there when you have to live in a neighborhood surrounded by violent enemies.
No way Jews vote 90+% 'Rat nationally today. Even 'Rat organizations that have a vested interest in overstating the 'Rat vote wouldn't give you a number that high.
Obama's vote among Jews nationally was probably no higher than 70% in 2008, despite very questionable numbers showing him as high as 78%. In 2012, assuming he is the 'Rat candidate, look for him to get no more than 50 to 60% of the Jewish vote.
Yes, that would be an accurate statement, statistically. But there are some religiously observant Jews who lean left, and some "secular" Jews - some here on FR - who are staunchly conservative politically.
That is a sharp drop off in support - although he should receive ZERO votes since he hates Judaism and Israel, in particular, and denigrates Jewish contributions to America. In fact, he HATES the USA now that I think of it.
While, I too, can’t believe in the Useful Idiot syndrome of Liberal Jews, I ask you to remember the Liberal Catholics who invited Obama to speak at Notre Dame all the while knowing of Obama’s support of partial-birth abortions.
I submit to you that there are Liberals in every religion and race who have allowed themselves to be duped into being useful idiots.
Re-read the accounts of Germany in the 1930’s and realize that entire nation’s have been brainwashed by Socialists. Spring forward to today’s Amerika and you will see history repeating itself.
The truth is... Not all Jew are Jews... it is not a race...
Missed the humor part eh!... Are you Chasidic?...
A smile could break the Chasidim's faces..
Not really.. You are Jewish because your mother was a Jew... NOT because you believe "ANYTHING".. You can be an atheist Jew.. You can even be a Muslim Jew.. still Jewish but very religious..
