Is Jewish support for PM Cameron and PM Harper a leading indicator of change?

Reader comment on item: Republicans and Democrats Look at the Arab-Israeli Conflict

Dr. Pipes,

I've seen polls showing broad support for PM Cameron and PM Harper among British Jewish and Canadian Jewish communities respectively. With the changes in American Jewish demographics favoring the orthodox community, do you believe that we'll see a 50-50 split in votes between parties within the next generation?

You also once wrote about the end of the so-called "golden age" for US Jewry, so it would be interesting if you think this era will affect voting patterns.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Long term, I agree that the demographic changes will lead to a more conservative Jewish electorate in the United States.

Yes, I do also expect that dangers such as currently exist in Europe will also change Jewish voting patterns in the United States.
