ADL released poll results today regarding Anti-Semitic attitudes of people in the USA. The Poll finds that 29% Blacks and 20% US-born Hispanics – both solid Democratic voting blocks – hold strong Anti-Semitic views. The same can be said on only fifteen percent of the overall U.S. population, according to the poll.
ADL notes that Blacks and Hispanics are now more than a quarter of the overall U.S. population and they grow at a fast rate. Therefore writes the ADL “these populations increase of the cohorts with a substantially higher percentage of anti-Semitic beliefs than the total population also means that anti-Semitic propensities in the coming years will be a challenge.”
More sobering is that 42% of foreign born Hispanics hold strong anti-Semitic views, according to this poll. This specific result may push more Jewish Americans to support more control at the borders and also to
oppose forces on the Left who want to give many rights to foreigners from the South side of the border despite their high rate of Anti-Semitism.
• Sixteen percent (16%) agreed that Jewish “business people are so shrewd, others don’t have a chance,” up from 13 percent in 2009.
• Thirty percent (30%) believe that Jews are “more loyal to Israel than to America,” a percentage that has remained virtually unchanged since ADL’s benchmark survey in 1964.
• Nearly half of all respondents agreed with the statement that Jews “stick together
more than other Americans, and 33 percent said they believe Jews “always like to be at the head of things.”
• 25% Americans believe that Jews “still talk too much about what happened to them in the Holocaust.”
