A RELIGION, NOT A RACE:

U.S. Jews' Support for Trump at Serious Low (Amir Tibon, Mar 17, 2019, Ha'aretz)

The Gallup poll, based on interviews with 978 Jewish American, shows that only 26 percent of them approve of Trump's conduct as president, with only 16 percent that define themselves as Republicans. Meanwhile, 71 percent of the Jewish respondents said they disapprove of Trump, with slightly over half of them identifying as Democrats.

The poll also surveyed Protestant, Catholic, Mormon and atheist or agnostic Americans, but Jewish respondents had the most negative view of Trump and were the least likely to identify as Republicans. In Congress, out of some 40 Jewish representatives, only two are Republicans.

The poll's results are in line with other public opinion polls conducted over the past year, as well as voting estimates in the 2018 midterm elections, which have shown that 78 percent of American Jews voted for Democratic candidates and only 17 percent supported Republicans.
