Poll: 79% of Jewish Americans vote for the Democratic Party

 The Pew Research Center last week organized a poll following the controversy sparked by US President Donald Trump's accusation that "American Jews who vote for the Democratic Party are disloyal to Israel and the Jews" in which he polled the views of American Jews. And their historical election models in the United States.

The results of the Center revealed that registered American Jewish voters were more affiliated with the Democratic Party than the Republican Party and wide differences, and that this affiliation (to vote for the Democratic Party) has changed only slightly in more than a quarter of a century.

The poll, published on Wednesday, August 28, 2019, showed that eight out of ten Jewish voters (79% of American Jewish votes) cast ballots for Democratic candidates for the House of Representatives in the November 2018 elections.

The poll indicates that 25 of the 27 Jewish members of the House of Representatives, and all nine senators, are from the Democratic Party (Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who is running for the presidency is an independent socialist, but he votes for the Democratic Party and is running for president. As a Democrat).

The poll revealed that American Jews more than American Christians acknowledge that President Trump prefers Israelis too much in their conflict with the Palestinians.

`` During his two-year tenure, Donald Trump took important steps to support Israel, including moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and recognizing the Jewish state's sovereignty over the Golan Heights, '' the poll said, as well as other measures in support of Israel and the Netanyahu government in particular.

"While American Jews have a strong connection to Israel, they are divided in their assessment of Trump's treatment of the Palestinian-Israeli-Palestinian issue," according to a new Pew Research Center survey.

About four in ten (42%) believe that Trump favors Israelis too much, while a similar percentage (47%) thinks Trump is achieving the right balance between Israelis and Palestinians. Six percent said he preferred the Palestinians too much, while four percent said they did not know.

Among Christians in the United States, 59% believe that Trump is achieving the right balance of support between Israelis and Palestinians, while 26% believe Trump supports the Israelis too much. Between Israelis and Palestinians, and only 15% believe that Trump supports the Israelis too much. "

The survey reveals that the difference between American evangelicals and American Jews on this question partly reflects partisan divisions.Most evangelical Protestants describe themselves as Republicans or say they tend to be Republican, while most Jews sympathize with or tend to the Democratic Party.

In general, Republicans often believe that Trump has achieved the right balance of support for Israelis and Palestinians, while 53% of Democrats believe that Trump prefers Israelis too much.

For those who describe themselves as not affiliated with any religion, most believe that President Trump and the United States in general are biased towards Israel.
