(RoyalPatriot.com )- A new poll from the Pew Research Center just revealed how Orthodox American Jews are flocking to the Republican Party. It showed how a majority of Jews in America still identify as Democrats – something we’ve known for some time – but that three out of four Orthodox Jews identify as Republican voters.
It suggests that those who subscribe to Judaism in the strictest and most conservative way are maintaining their support of the Republican Party despite obviously untrue claims by Democrats and the media that the party harbors neo-Nazis, racists, and extremists.
Surveying 4,718 American adults who identify as Jewish, with 882 identifying as Jews of no religion and 3,836 as Jews by religion, the survey revealed the interesting dynamics within members of the Jewish community.
The survey was taken between November 19, 2019, and June 3, 2020.
The results found that younger American Jews are increasingly turning to Orthodox teachings and practice, but only three percent of Jews over the age of 65 currently identify as orthodox.
Furthermore, some 17% of Jews between the ages of 18 and 29 now claim to be Orthodox. And as more American Jews turn to Orthodox practice, more are therefore turning to conservative ideas and the Republican Party.
The number of Jewish people in the country is increasing, too. 6.7 million Jews lived in the United States in 2013, and in 2020, that number grew to 7.5 million.
When asked about former President Donald Trump, 94% of American Orthodox Jews said that they viewed him positively and favored his support of Israel, while 77% said that they believed he was friendly to the American Jewish community.
This completely destroys the narrative set by Democrats over the last five years.
Some 60% of Orthodox Jews, according to the survey, saw the Republican Party as friendly to Jews, and only 22% said that the Democratic Party was on their side.
