President Donald Trump’s policies toward Israel are not winning over support for him among American Jews, according to a poll released by The Mellman Group on Wednesday.

Although 51 percent of American Jews said they approved of Trump’s handling of relations with Israel, only 6 percent said they would consider voting for him due to those policies despite differing from him on other issues.

Other results from the survey showed:

  • American Jews maintain their loyalty to the Democratic Party, with 75 percent saying they planned to vote for Democratic candidates in the upcoming midterms. Sixty-eight percent said they identified with the Democratic Party, while 25 percent said they support the GOP.
  • Seventy-five percent of U.S. Jews disapprove of Trump, while only 25 percent approve. Opposition to the president was so fierce that 71 percent said they would not even consider voting for him in 2020.
  • Most American Jews opposed the president’s handling of more than a dozen issues, both domestic and foreign, with his handling of ties with Israel the only one that received majority approval.

The poll represents the findings of a national survey of 800 voters designed to reflect the likely 2018 Jewish electorate. Interviews were conducted online though a randomly selected panel between October 2-11. The margin of error is +/- 3.5 percent at the 95 percent level of confidence.
