GOP Group’s Poll Misrepresents Jewish Voting

Posted on Nov 29, 2006

AlterNet has the emmes on a poll of Jewish Americans that showed a surprisingly high (26.4%) Republican turnout: ” ‘[The poll] bypassed Jews who never attend synagogue or do not associate with a major movement.’ Or: half of America’s Jewish population.”


AlterNet:

In an effort to carry water for its party, the Republican Jewish Coalition conducted a post-election poll of Jews showing that a hulking 26.4% of Jews voted Republican. Wow. And that’d actually be an improvement.

That number stands in contrast to national polls showing Jewish support for Democrats up around 90% in the midterms.

So what accounts for the significant difference? Jennifer Siegel writes: “[The poll] bypassed Jews who never attend synagogue or do not associate with a major movement.” Or: half of America’s Jewish population.
