Democrats Don’t Have Internet

In April 2005, The Solomon Project came out with a study showing that 77% of the American Jews voted for John Kerry in the 2004 Presidential Election, while only 22% voted for President Bush. These figures, of course, are not surprising, and I expect to see somewhat similar figures after the 2008 election.

That is why I find this new online poll from Jerusalem Post to be so interesting.  Of the 4,500 participants who voted, 75% said they are planning on voting for John McCain in November, while only 22% are planning on voting for Barack Obama.  74% of the participants also said that foreign policy was more significant for them than domestic policy.

While this poll is clearly skewed (for all we know, half the people voting may be from Israel), there is a shift going on in the Jewish community towards the Republican party.  I notice it among my friends, many of whom have fairly liberal views on domestic policy, yet are planning on voting for McCain in November.
