Media Telebriefing: Release of an Election Night Survey of American Jewish Voters
New national survey to reveal how American Jews voted and what issues impacted their vote
WASHINGTON, Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — A new survey of American Jewish voters across the country and in key swing states will offer the most comprehensive examination of Jewish voters on Election Day – assessing their voting preferences and priorities, and their opinions on Israel. The survey comes on the heels of an unprecedented campaign by Sheldon Adelson, the Republican Jewish Committee and the Emergency Committee of Israel spending tens of millions of dollars to sway the historically loyal Democratic voting block by turning support for Israel into a partisan wedge issue.
The survey, which is believed to be the only scientifically-driven election night poll of Jewish voting behavior this year, will be conducted on election night by Gerstein | Bocian | Agne Strategies and released on Wednesday, November 7 at 1:00 p.m. EST. Founding partner Jim Gerstein will brief media on the survey’s findings Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. To participate, please dial 866-952-7523 and ask the operator to connect you to the “Jewish Vote” call.
Gerstein has decades of experience studying Jewish voting patterns and has conducted annual polls of Jewish voters since 2008. He has spent much of this year’s election cycle challenging partisan assertions that Jewish voters are abandoning President Barack Obama because of the Democratic Party’s policies on Israel.
Earlier this year, Gerstein released a comprehensive report on Jewish voting behavior based on a thorough review of polls by Gallup, Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, and the Public Religion Research Institute. An executive summary of that report can be found here, http://jstreet.org/blog/post/making-sense-of-the-jewish-vote_2.
