A recent poll breaks down the support for McCain and Obama among Jews by denomination:
I can’t figure out why there is such a sharp difference. It’s not like abortion would be a wedge issue (an aside: Orthodox Jews comprise 7-12% of the population; in this poll, they were 8% of the sample). Age can’t be an issue either: Conservative Jews trend slightly older, and Orthodox slightly younger. It would be interesting to see how denomination is correlated with religious denomination and with importance of Israel’s security.
Unfortunately, like every other poll where they claim to release the data, we don’t have each person’s responses linked to each other. This means all we can do is stare at bar graphs and offer up bullshit.
When I become El Supremo, pollsters will be required to release the damn spreadsheet…
