(PresidentialHill.com)- According to a Fox News exit poll, more American Jews supported the Republican party on Tuesday than the previous generation.
According to the survey, 65 percent of Jewish voters still prefer the Democratic Party, but support for the Republican Party is progressively increasing, with 33 percent of respondents choosing the red option, up from 30 percent in 2020 and 24 percent in 2016.
The survey found that 2% of respondents said they were “other.”
According to Sam Markstein, national head of the Republican Jewish Coalition, Republican candidates “are presenting specific solutions to the issues important to Jewish voters.”
The Jerusalem Post quoted Markstein as saying that these concerns include “decreasing the skyrocketing costs of living, combating rising hate crime, championing school choice, putting America first on the world stage again by supporting our allies in Israel, and standing shoulder-to-shoulder-with the Jewish community in the fight against antisemitism.”
A record-breaking amount of Jewish support in Florida, at 45%, was recorded, according to Markstein.
Rep. Lee Zeldin, a Jewish Republican running for governor of New York, failed in his attempt to unseat Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul. Between 80% and 90% of Brooklyn’s Hasidic communities voted for Zeldin, and most Orthodox Jews supported him.
Almost all of the progressive Jewish voters supported Hochul.
American Jews tend to be disproportionately concentrated on the liberal/Democratic side of the political spectrum regarding their voting patterns, political identities, and attitudes. Since the late 1920s, the pattern has remained more or less constant. The majority of the wealthy, however, are likely to support the right-wing party. Even when individual variances are taken into account, American Jews as a whole consistently place near the top on most indicators of social class, including prestige in their professions, money, and education.
Their dedication to the Democratic party and liberal principles is very perplexing.
House Democrats, under pressure from their radical left-wing, voted to cut funding for Israel’s Iron Dome defense system from its budget.
Overwhelming Jewish support for the Democratic party is hard to comprehend.
