New Poll: American Jewish Voters Firmly with Democrats in 2016

In a new poll released today, the American Jewish community is continuing to be firmly behind the Democratic party in 2016. The poll, which was released by the American Jewish Coalition, shows that Democratic candidates are the first and second choices of Jewish voters, with Republicans lagging far behind.

From the AJC:

Hillary Clinton is by far the leading choice of Jewish voters for president in the 2016 election, according to the AJC survey. Clinton was the first choice of 40 percent of the respondents—47 percent of the women—and the second choice of another 20 percent. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was the only other Democratic candidate to register in double digits, attracting 18 percent of first-choice preferences and 21 percent as a second choice. The Republican candidate with the most first-place support was Donald Trump at 10 percent, followed by Jeb Bush at 9 percent.
