    Why do Jewish people vote overwhelmingly Democratic?

    Why do Jewish people constantly vote Democratic, in local, state and national elections when some progressives support Palestine and the BDS movement in the colleges. I'm an Independent and I have been wondering for years why Jews vote Democrats when some members of the party openly support Palestine, especially some members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus?

    The bigger question is "Why don't more people of faith, particularly Christians, vote for Bernie Sanders? They pray to a Socialist Jew every Sunday.

    To really answer your question:

    1) Because they have a conscience.

    2) Something about Trump reminds them of someone???

    It's like you're totally devoid of history. When does your realization of the world begin?

    I don't think Sanders has any values. That's why some Christians may not be endorsing him.

    Christians are endorsing Trump, so there goes your theory right out the window.

    I'm not a Trump guy. Also, Christians may be voting for any candidate. Not only Cruz, etc.

    Also, with the Sanders values thing, not everyone wants to support free Pre K, etc. Taxpayers have to pay for these things.

    To answer your original question, Jews in this country are overwhelmingly liberal, not every American Jew supports the policies of Netanyahu.

    Sanders is non religious. Jews were at the forefront of socialist movements, Critical theory, The democratic party is a logical progression.

    Calling oneself Jew doesn't imply a religious view. It could be a religious practice, cultural or blood line. Semitic Jew would imply Sephardic as opposed to Ashkenazi (Russian)
