    Most jews in the US still live in NY and having lived there for a 3.5 years recently i can pretty safely say the answer to your question is NO. they will not be voting for the GOP. In NY the only republicans they vote for are people who were democrats but could not get the democrats to back them so they change to republican to run in the general election.

    Bush is a liberal, but he does not fit the part about being a democrat for years.

    Badnarik is an isolationist. Your 'fact' about NY is not quite right:

    And old MacDonald has a farm. But what does it have to do with this conversation?

    oops. You are right. But the whole NE has much the same attitude torwards republicans. Even though as you know I think republicans are much liberal than they should be it is taken to the extreme in the NE. And that is where 43% of jews live as that said and if they do not live there they still usually have ties there.

    My favorite jewish political organization is the Jews for preservation of Firearms organization. www.jpfo.com

    It is not the first time i have been wrong, nor will it be the last. I have even admited here a few times now. I am sure you will see more in the months ahead as well. I have never been afraid to admit when I am wrong. How do you think i came to become a libertarian? :)

    I don't know if stats are kept on this, but Jews usually vote D. This is because Jews feel safer in a multiracial environment, which the Democrats promote. Republicans are seen as the white, authoritarian, "Nazi" party. For an understanding of why Jews dislike white gentiles and seek to undermine them, you must read "The Culture of Critique".

    The fact that Bush promotes Israel's interests by launching wars on its behalf, one might think, would garner Jewish interest, and to some extent, it does. But in general, Jews are liberal.

    The Jews that I know in Tex are shifting to the Gop for 2 reasons--his economic policies and his WOT. They are also realizing that the Dems have SO MANY minorities to "protect" that they are losing influence. They don't appreciate the Dems wanting Palestinian rights in Israel.
