In our previous Jewish Party Identification post we were able to bring some ‎order to the seemingly conflicting numbers from different polls - putting the ‎percentage of Jewish Democrats on 65%-68% and the percentage of Jewish ‎Republicans on 27%-29%. What we have in this post doesn’t reflect much ‎change in the overall numbers. ‎

The graph below and the table at the bottom were updated to include new ‎numbers from the poll by Workmen’s Circle. They include the three categories of ‎Democrats, Republicans and Independents (we combined the “stronger” and ‎weaker leanings appearing at the original poll) – but do not divide the ‎Independents into further “leaning” categories. This leaves us without additional ‎confirmation to the trend recorded only in PEW surveys, according to which ‎there’s a trend toward the Republican Party among Jewish voters.‎
