That's why most Jews tend to be quite secular and independent. You have the anti-Israel far left and the anti-mainstream-Jew far right. We just don't fit in either direction.

It is certainly true that a great majority of christian America remains quite anti-semitic, and the majority of them vote Republican.

Seeing as most Republicans I know are very pro-Israel and very pro-Jewish, I have no idea what you are talking about.

On the average Jewish people are better educated and more knowledgeable. The Democrats get from Jewish voters around 30% above their national percentage

All minorities prefer (overwhelmingly or slightly) the Democrats:  Gays, Blacks, Jews, Asians, Hispanic and Catholics.
Why? There is probably a good reason for this.

some good reasons:

1. the dems play the race card. 
2.  the dems promise a lot of wood nickels to minorities.  if democrats were so damn generous to those of color, how come all inner-cities are slums?  what have the democrats done in dc, atlanta, new orleans, chicago etc etc.

Its not as bad right-wing class-warfare conducted, by pundits’ such as Limbaugh whose conscious cultivation of a ‘plen-T-plaint’ mentality among white working-class Americans against a class enemy defined by its cultural and consumption patterns—the Volvo-driving, latte-drinking, fromage-eating liberal elite.

What do you mean by anti-Israel? Are you counting anyone who has ever criticized the Israel government, including Israeli jews?

I am saying that most really far-leftists tend to criticize Israel quite often. However, I'm not really pro-Israel, so I can't explain it for you very well.

Uh yes there is ethnic and religous Jewish differences.

Jews and Judaism.

The American Jewish Identity Survey of 2000, conducted by Barry Kosmin, Egon Mayer, and Ariela Keysar at the Center for Jewish Studies at the City University of New York's Graduate Center, concluded that there were 5.5 million Jews in the United States.

Of these, 1.4 million were aligned with a religion other than Judaism, 1.4 million were secular or non-religious, leaving 51% of American Jews (just over 3 million people) whose religion was Judaism. The study surveyed 50,000 randomly selected adult American.

To put it this way, there not very religous.

The same can be said of Jews:

On the average Jewish people are better educated, more knowledgeable, and well to do. Oh, yes, and they vote Democratic overwhelmingly.

The Jews are a group that bucks both the wealth trend and the Republican religion trend.

I am consider by some to be on the "far-right" yet I support Israel because it is a useful American ally in the Middle East and the only functioning Democracy in the region. Actually democracy is the major reason I support Israel not some religious second coming nonsense. '

Actually Catholics went for Bush 56-44 in this election IIRC. Hispanics have been trending Republican also and some Asians, like Indian Americans, are very Republican groups.
