The provenance of this poll, very much Democratic, is dubious, and the sample size suffers from the usual problem when polling Jews in Florida, it’s vanishingly small, yet the results are interesting in one particular regard.
Orthodox Jews as a group comprise the single outlier to this trend, with 46 percent identifying Israel as one of their top two voting priorities. They constitute the only group within the survey—including age, education and denomination—to identify as majority Republicans(67 percent). They hold extremely positive views of President George W. Bush (+69) and extremely negative views of President Barak Obama (-55). Sixty-six percent support Trump’s candidacy and show little chance of changing
This isn’t much of a surprise.
Support for Obama vs opposition to him can be predicted by weekly synagogue attendance.
60 percent of Jews that attend weekly religious services disapprove of Obama. Only 34 percent approve.
Among those who don’t attend religious services, approval of Obama stood at 58 percent to 38 percent.
There are really two Jewish votes; the religious Jewish vote and the secular Jewish vote.
The trouble for the left though is that the religious Jewish population is growing and the secular Jewish population isn’t.
