Ray of hope

I have previously pointed out the ongoing trend of the Democratic Party – its politicians and supporters – becoming more anti-Israel while the GOP remains strongly pro-Israel. It has been a great source of frustration that many of my pro-Israel Democratic friends have seemed blind to this.

But I just saw some news that offers a ray of hope. According to a poll done by J Street, Jews backed Democrats over Republicans by a 66-31 margin in yesterday’s election.

66% of Jews voting for Democrats is a decrease from the typical 76% Jewish support in a mid-term election! It is still much more than the 43% overall support Democrats enjoyed, yesterday, and the decrease may reflect the overall Republican wave.

I prefer to look on the bright side and hope this marks a trend of pro-Israel Jewish voters moving away from the Democratic party.
