HECK, THEY'RE THE SMALLEST PART OF THE SOCIETY-WIDE CONSPIRACY:

Fuming Behind the Scenes, the Republican Jewish Coalition Effectively Dumps Trump (Nathan Guttman, October 13, 2016, Forward)

Uneasy from the start with Donald Trump as their party's presidential candidate, Republican Jewish activists are fuming and fretting in the wake of revelations about Trump's lewd character and alleged sexual harassment.

The Republican Jewish Coalition, which endorsed Trump immediately after he secured the party's nomination, has not withdrawn its official support. But behind closed doors, individual members are doing exactly that. The members who spoke to the Forward say they still cannot support Hillary Clinton. But they are focusing their efforts on keeping Republican majorities in Congress -- a tacit acknowledgement that she will likely win the presidency.

"My temperature is 105 degrees, this man is a total embarrassment to all of us and to America," said an RJC board member and major Jewish GOP donor on Tuesday. The donor, who like others contacted by the Forward insisted on not being identified by name, listed Trump's recent comments about women and his promise to jail Clinton as being beyond the pale and unacceptable. [...]

"They weren't talking to Jews like us," said one of the donors, explaining that the arguments put forward by the Trump campaign were not convincing and did not address their concerns about Trump's personality and perceived ignorance of world affairs.

The group's activities reflect this lack of enthusiasm. It has not put out any ads or emails supporting Trump and has focused instead on criticizing Clinton and on trying to assist vulnerable Republican senators up for reelection.

Just this week, the group made a $500,000 TV ad purchase in Pennsylvania in attempt to shore up support for incumbent Pat Toomey. The group's ads focus on the Iran nuclear deal; they attack Democratic candidates who expressed support for the 2015 agreement.
