Poll: Jewish Voters Favor Biden Over Trump
A new poll shows Jewish voters in Florida favor Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden over President Donald Trump. The Trump campaign had hoped the peace deal between the United Arab Emirates and Israel would help the president gain more Jewish support. But, a poll by J Street, a pro-Israel group, shows American Jewish voters are more focused on domestic issues.
"You can see that 6% in Florida, and 4% in Pennsylvania cite Israel as one of their top two issues determining their vote, at the bottom of the list. This is not to say Jews don’t care about Israel, they do," said pollster Jim Gerstein. "In other surveys that we’ve asked, there’s a strong emotional attachment to Israel. But when it comes to voting, it is not at the center of what they’re voting on."
The survey results show that 73% of Jewish voters in Florida support Biden, with only 22% planning to vote in favor of Trump. According to the poll, the two most common issues members of the Jewish voting population are focused on are the pandemic and the economy.
