NEW POLL: Jewish Voters Overwhelmingly Support Democrats

July 13, 2021

The Jewish Electorate Institute has just released its newest poll of Jewish American voters, which demonstrates why the past four years have only solidified the Democratic Party as the political home of American Jews. American Jews overwhelmingly identify as pro-Israel, liberal Democrats, and 80 percent of Jewish voters support the job Joe Biden is doing as president.

For the first time, this poll demonstrates that Republican efforts to suppress the vote are a top political concern of American Jews. Jewish voters strongly support abolishing the Senate filibuster to pass comprehensive voting rights legislation, and want to see Congress act on this issue. In an increasingly polarized political environment, this new poll shows the Jewish community is overwhelmingly united on many key issues facing our nation and the world, including Israel.

Here are a few of the poll’s most critical findings about Jewish voters:

  • 80% approve of President Biden’s job performance.
  • 76% of Jewish voters voted for Joe Biden over Donald Trump in 2020.
  • 76% support legislation to expand voter access and voting rights.
  • 62% support eliminating the filibuster to pass voting rights legislation.
  • 68% would vote for the Democratic candidate if the 2022 midterm elections were held today.
  • 80-90% hold unfavorable views of Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, Kevin McCarthy, and the Republican Party.
  • 74% approve of President Biden’s approach to Israel.
  • 87% believe you can be both pro-Israel and critical of the Israeli government.
  • 61% of Jewish voters are more concerned about antisemitism originating from the right than from the left (22%).
  • 71% believe that U.S. financial aid to Israel is important.
