The Media, The Enigmatic Minority And The Midterm Election: Is There A “Jewish Vote”?
Hosted By: Institute for Israel and Jewish Studies at Columbia University
Jewish voters could determine the outcome in key elections this year. They also present a case study in the challenges of reporting on a minority: Which issues really matter to them, who speaks for the community, is polling accurate, and what assumptions about how Jews vote are obsolete? The same questions apply to other minorities: Can anyone forecast how Hispanics will vote? Do Asian-Americans vote as a bloc, and in what way? Is there an LGBTQ vote? Join us to hear top journalists discuss covering the intersection of electoral and identity politics at a critical moment.
