By definition, all Jews should be conservative Republicans, if for no other reason than for the sake of their continued existence. The fact that the left aligns itself with radical Islam should be enough to persuade Jews to vote Republican because ultimately the Communist left-wing Democrats will be the Jews' undoing should they allow radical Islam to succeed in bringing about a second Jewish Holocaust. Do Jews not realize that by voting Dem they're essentially voting themselves back into the gas chambers? Thoughts?

Just confused about helping the poor, and the government's job to take care of the poor and needy.
Surviving the Holocaust made them sensitive to injustice, so sensitive that hey shoot themselves in the foot.
So many of the Jewish prayers are about NOT needing financial help, or any other help being self reliance, and making a living without needing the help of others, that maybe somehow they look at the government helping as a responsibility.
Also, surviving the Holocaust made them so sensitive to suffering of other minorities that they sometimes shoot themselves in the foot.

Jewish people voting for democrats goes back to the 1930's. New York City-FDR-New deal. They retire, move to West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami but still think the same way. Obamacare kills their Advantage plan, removes $500 billion from medicare, no S.S. cola, and they still vote for democrats.

Many of the original socialists and communists were Jews. There should be no surprise that many would favor the left.

Most Jews don't relay on the government, but on themselves. They study hard, work hard, and succeeds. Somehow they are worried about those that don't have they same opportunities, and want the government to help them.
In so many conversation I had with my liberal Jewish friends, they always say, "yes, you can sit and help your kids, but what about those people who can't help their kids at school, they need more help- from he school".

I agree they might need more help, but not from the government.
P.S. I am Jewish too, but got wiser when I grew up

Because they are a wise, sophisticated group of individuals who know that Democratic is the way to go

There are some excellent answers to your question offered up by various people in this 2008 article:

American Thinker: Symposium: Why do so many Jews still vote Democrat?

Of particular interest is their support of FDR who was no friend of the Jews.

"In fact, they got it wrong right from the get go. As President during history's once greatest threat to the survival of the Jewish people, FDR was by no measure an ally. To the contrary - In 1939, while his anti-Semitic secretary of state, Breckinridge Long, worked overtime to stop Jewish immigration, it was FDR himself that denied the SS St. Louis -- a German ocean liner carrying over 950 Jewish refugees fleeing Hitler -- entry to our shores. It turned out that the dearly beloved Democrat actually refused virtually every opportunity presented him to stop the Holocaust."

Many Jews believe that everyone should have equal opportunity for success, and we have a responsibility to help the have nots and those who are in need even if it means some sacrifices by the haves and have mores. Education is also important to many Jews, and the whole if your educated then you are some sort of elitist likely doesn't sit well. Nor does trying to teach things like Creationism as Science. The southern Evangelical style takeover of the GOP doesn't exactly sit well either.

The real question is, why do poor Whites vote for the Republicans? The Republicans use poor Whites (ones who either have fundamentalist Christian beliefs or bigoted tendencies or both) as their foot soldiers yet the Republican policies do absolutely NOTHING to better the lives of the poor Whites. The Repubs just use them to get into power then proceed to make the fat cats' pockets even thicker while attempting to balame all of society's ills on the "colored" folk. Sad.....and dumb.
