J Street: National Survey of American Jews--Survey Data
J Street, March 23, 2010
In March 2010, J Street commissioned a new poll to find out what American Jews are actually thinking about the Obama Administration's efforts to achieve a two-state solution. Some key findings of this survey include:
- There is solid support in the Jewish community for J Street's position that peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a core Israeli and American interest and that the United States should take an active leadership role in achieving peace.
-60 percent of American Jews believe Israel's announcement of new housing in East Jerusalem caused damage to U.S.-Israel relations, and 55 percent say the United States was right to strongly criticize the Israeli announcement of new housing in East Jerusalem during Vice President Biden's visit.
- Obama's approval in the Jewish community is holding steady at 62 percent. Gallup reported a 64 percent approval rating in an October 2009 poll. Obama's approval rating among Jews is 15 points higher than among all Americans (47 percent) according to a Gallup poll conducted during the same period.
