RJC: Closing the Partisan Gap - Support for Republicans Rises Among Jewish Voters

Washington, D.C. (January 7, 2015) - The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) responded to the release of a new Gallup Poll on Jewish American partisan affiliations. The poll shows the continued trend of growth in Republican support among Jewish voters.

Jewish support for Democrats dropped by 10% between 2008 and 2014. The Gallup Poll found that 29% of Jews identify as Republicans, up from 22% in 2008.

RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks said:

“This poll reinforces what we have seen at the voting booth, the GOP continues to make inroads with Jewish voters. Republicans have gained support in the Jewish community in 5 of the last 6 national elections. The RJC has worked over past election cycles to increase Jewish support for Republicans, helping Mitt Romney get 31% of the Jewish vote up from 22% in 2008. We are encouraged by the trend and the continued inroads the GOP is making with the Jewish community.”

RJC Welcomes Release of Alan Gross; Calls Normalizing Relations with Cuba “Unwise”

Washington, D.C. (December 17, 2014) – The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) is happy to know that Alan Gross has been released and is back on American soil after five years of imprisonment in Cuba. On the first day of Hanukkah, Alan Gross was granted light, freedom, and the long-awaited reunion with his family. The RJC joins the entire Jewish community in celebrating his redemption.

Our relief that his long ordeal is over is tempered by our deep concern about President Obama’s decision to begin normalizing relations with the totalitarian government of Cuba. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Robert Menendez (D-NJ) has said that, “President Obama’s actions have vindicated the brutal behavior of the Cuban government.” The people of Cuba are still in prison – many literally so. American steps to open diplomatic and trade relations with Cuba while the government continues to oppress its own people and to support terrorism around the world is unwise. We call on Congress will look into this matter when they reconvene.
