Reader comment on item: Republicans and Democrats Look at the Arab-Israeli Conflict
in response to reader comment: So why do American Jews support Democrats?

Submitted by Michael S (United States), May 2, 2015 at 09:35

Hi, Fred.

Here's the latest I've found on the matter:

The prestigious Gallup research institute published unsurprising data this month about Obama's approval rate among US Jews: From nearly 80% when he was first elected to 54% today...

Also,

In a head-to-head match-up for the general elections, Jeb Bush, as the Republican nominee, would receive the most support of Jewish voters than any other candidate, and trails Hillary Clinton by only 6 points (44-38), the poll showed.

I expect those numbers to erod somewhat by the time of the 2016 election, simply because the Democrats are really slick when it comes to deluding Jews; but you can see that the D-R gap is closing.

There are some other dynamics at work, which I think are more important than the D/R equation:

American Jews are becoming non-Jewish, at an accelerating pace. This means that much of the "Jewish" vote is merging with the "Mainstream Irreligious/Atheist" vote. That's not good, for either Israel or Jewry

American Jews have such a low birth rate, and Muslim immigration is so great, that Jewish "votes" (i. e. actual marking of ballots) are becoming irrelevant. I suspect that Jewish financial clout is also sliding, as more and more of the world's rich are goiim (meaning fewer pro-Israel and pro-Jewish campaign dollars).

There is no guarantee that Republicans will continue to support Israel. Pro-Israel Americans tend to be "patriotic"; and as such, have a deep history of anti-semitism.

I'm really getting plagued by pop-ups (asking if I want to share my location) and page refreshes, presumably from danielpipes.org; so I'll quit here...
