The above link provides data on the Jewish vote in US presidential elections going back through 1916.

Here is the data for 1976-1992:

1976
Carter: 71
Ford: 27

1980
Carter: 45
Reagan: 39
Anderson: 14

1984
Mondale: 67
Reagan: 31

1988
Dukakis: 64
Bush: 35

1992
Clinton: 80
Bush: 11
Perot: 9

Both Jimmy Carter and George H. W. Bush experienced large drop-offs in the percentages of the Jewish vote during their respective unsuccessful reelection campaigns.  I understand that many Jews were upset with Carter, but what about Bush?  Why did his share of the Jewish vote drop by over two-thirds from 1988 to 1992?

Bill Clinton ran on a tough on crime campaign thats widely criticized nowadays. But that along with being less left-wing on economics made a lot of middle class jews(along with the middle class suburbia in general) turn to him.

Why would urban big city Jews like Jimmy Carter's rural hick persona so much? Especially against a northern moderate like Ford. I know that overall New York state was very close in 1976, as the Northeast was not exactly thrilled with such a Deep Southern moderate running.

Even McGovern got 65%, so it's not like Carter's 71 was that huge, especially compared to Humphrey's 81 or JFK's 82.

Its not so much Carter as it is Jewish American longstanding support for the Democrats.

Ford was so inoffensive and the last 'decent' Republican president. I am just surprised at his relative under performance. There was no anti intellectualism, and no Christian fundamentalism from Ford either. While Carter was openly evangelistic which could have turned a lot of Jews off. I would have expected 1976 to more of a 60-40% thing among Jews considering all that.
