Poll Shows Jewish-Americans More Likely To Oppose Iraq War

Technorati Tags: , , ,

A new Gallup Poll shows that an overwhelming majority of American Jews oppose the war in Iraq -- regardless of political affiliation, and in greater numbers than any other religious group:

An analysis of Gallup Poll data collected since the beginning of 2005 finds that among the major religious groups in the United States, Jewish Americans are the most strongly opposed to the Iraq war. Catholics and Protestants are more or less divided in their views on the war, while Mormons are the most likely to favor it. Those with no religious affiliation also oppose the war, but not to the same extent that Jewish people do. The greater opposition to the war is not simply a result of high Democratic identification among U.S. Jews, as Jews of all political persuasions are more likely to oppose the war than non-Jews who share the same political leanings.

As a Jewish-American, I feel proud.
