J Street commissioned polls of of American Jews on America’s role in the Middle East immediately surrounding the 2010 election. The first-ever election night polls of American Jews find the community bucking national trends and overwhelmingly supporting Democratic candidates and President Obama, as well as a bold US-led push for Middle East peace.
Despite millions of dollars worth of partisan and neo-conservative attempts to turn Israel into a wedge issue this election cycle, the attacks failed to change the way American Jews voted.
