And what country did they come from?

Maybe we have to thank the squad for showing what the Democratic Party is about and I* believe from what I have been hearing lately, that more Jews will vote for Trump. Maybe not all will do so because they agree with everything, but many can no longer stand behind the Democratic Party that is overflowing of Anti-Semitism.

Not sure if anti-Semitism would make Jews walk away from the democratic party. Trump have said Mexico is enemy of the USA and how Mexicans are murderous rapists drug dealers and maybe there is a good person in there but still has some Mexican supporters. Trump has shown to be a pervert who brags about sleeping around, grabbing women by the vagina, watching teenagers undress in his pageants, has been married 3 times already because of his cheating, and yet even feminist groups support him. Christians would never ever allow someone like Trump to put a foot behind their podium, yet, they go as far as saying he best represents moral, family, and Christian values. I can give more examples of how people can follow, admire, and support a candidate even if he clearly goes against their beliefs and convictions.

They are Israelis, not Palestinians. "Palestine" exists in theory, only. It is not a member of the UN, does not issue travel visas, and does not issue passports.

ETA: Those living in the Palestinian territories are issued passports by the "Palestinian Authority," but they are practically useless. In practice, most living in the West Bank are given a Jordanian passport by the Jordanian government for traveling abroad.

Exactly where would they go?

Libertarian? Republican?
Iím not saying they are leaving, but as it is, 1 in 4 already vote republican in presidential elections. A minority, sure, but still enough to discredit any claim that it would be far fetched for Jews to vote republican.

Nope........

"76 percent of Jewish voters voted for Democrats, while 19 percent voted for Republicans (2018)."

19 percent is not 1 in 4. Less than 1 in 5.

When all presidential elections are averaged since 1968, 25% vote Republican. I just posted the link somewhere a few days ago. I’ll see if I can find it.

(Edit). Wait. 2018? Read my post again.

(Edit again). Found the link:

Yeah, long term avg but Bush got 19% and Mccain 22% and, as you know, all voters are becoming more independent.......so unless the GOP comes up with something different then their far-right turn I don't see 25% going GOP.

We are just dumb enough (like me!) to vote 3rd party a lot...

You're forgetting about the prominent Dem antisemites. They're not afraid whatsoever to publicly express their hatred of Jews.
