New Insights on Jewish Political Behavior: What Can We Take Away from the November 2010 Elections?

By Steven F. Windmueller

A number of elements seem to dominate the 2010 mid-term elections involving the Jewish vote and with reference to Jewish political priorities. While the 112th Congress will be seating 12 Jewish senators, one less than the current numbers, the emergence of Virginia Republican Representative Eric Cantor, as the new Majority Leader in the House would seem to take precedence. This marks the first time that a Jewish member of either party or from either chamber has held such a prominent position within the Congress. While there will be more than 30 Jewish House members in the new Congress, the GOP momentum was responsible for the defeat of five Jewish Democrats.
