Abstract:

Although an overwhelming majority of American Jews consider themselves moderate or liberal, the author asserts that there are indications that Jewish support for the Republican party is on the rise. The growing Orthodox communities in the New York metropolitan area and elsewhere are distinctively Republican, he notes, and Jews raised in households with a non-Jewish parent and who identify nominally with Judaism also tend to vote Republican.
