Listed in: Other Domestic Policy, NJDC News, Press Releases

WASHINGTON,  DC- The National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) lauded President Barack Obama’s 2013 state of the union address and noted that the vast majority of American Jews support the President’s agenda. NJDC Marc R. Stanley said:

“In November, Jewish-Americans voted overwhelmingly to give President Obama a second term. Tonight, the President made clear why. The policies laid out by the President on key domestic issues, such as immigration, climate change, protecting the environment, support for Israel, and other social issues are broadly supported by the vast majority of American Jews. Polls consistently demonstrate that the Democratic Party is the natural political home for American Jews and tonight’s address by the President provides even further proof.”

Polling data from 2012 released by the Workmen’s CircleAmerican Jewish Committee, and the Public Religion Research Institute all show that there is strong support for the President’s agenda among most American-Jews.
