From "The Twelve Tribes of American Politics"


A small but politically active group.  While representing only 1.9% of voting-age population, Jewish-Americans represent  3.0% of those Americans who vote.  21% call themselves Republicans, 11% call themselves, Independents and 68% call themselves Democrats.

Political Trend: A strong Democratic group, though Bush has tried to break the Democratic lock on Jewish voters.

This group puts foreign policy first; 75% of Jews say the U.S. should support Israel over the Palestinians--a figure comparable to the Religious Right--and also have moderate to conservative positions on other foreign policy matters. Liberal on economics and especially social issues...

Who do you see soliciting the Jewish vote?  Who will the majority of Jewish-Americans support?
