American Jews are more anti-Trump than Catholics, Protestants, Agnostics or Atheists; and are the least likely of all the groups to enroll as Republicans. In a Gallup poll conducted last week, only 28 percent of Jewish respondents were favorable to President Trump against 71 percent of Jewish voters oppose him. When compared to the groups listed above, American Jews are most negative toward President Trump. Polls conduced following the 2018 midterm elections returned similar results, showing 78 percent saying they voted for Democrats and only 17 percent supporting Republicans. The president is known to have expressed his confusion over his rejection by Jewish voters in light of his declaration that Jerusalem is the capital of the Jewish state and his moving of the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Although he clearly wants to convince Jewish voters to vote Republican, there is no indication so far that he has discovered the key to making that happen.
