Three-Quarters of Jewish Voters Polled Blame Trump for Rise in Antisemitism

Adovish Middle East advocacy group has released poll results showing that a vast majority of Jewish voters attribute a recent rise in antisemitism to Donald Trump and his allies in the Republican Party.

J Street on Thursday published the election night poll finding that 76 percent of American Jews believe the former president and his wing of the GOP are responsible for an uptick in antisemitism and white supremacy. The poll also found 74 percent believe Trump and the MAGA movement are "a threat to Jews in America." The poll follows reports of increasing antisemitic incidents and as Trump is expected to announce another bid for the presidency.

The poll was conducted by research company GBAO on behalf of J Street, which describes itself as a "pro-Israel, pro-peace" advocacy group, and included responses from 800 self-identified Jewish voters who cast ballots in Tuesday's midterm elections.
