Iraq, Iran and unaffiliated Jews

Shmuel Rosner:

On the AJC web page you can only see the general numbers - but here are some examples of the ways in which the unaffiliated are different from the affiliated:

Do you think the United States did the right thing in taking military action against Iraq, or should the U.S. have stayed out? Reform: 73% right, 23% out. Just Jewish: 27% right, 66% out. Would you support or oppose the United States taking military action against Iran to prevent it from developing nuclear weapons? Reform: approve 32%, disapprove 61%. Just Jewish: approve 41%, disapprove 52%.

But here's the most revealing question - the one that is relevant to this specific debate: In politics, as of today, do you consider yourself a Republican, a Democrat, or an Independent? Reform: 14% Republican, 59% Democrat, 26% independent. Just Jewish: 13% Republican, 48% Democrat, 34% independent.
