Chapter 5 discusses political preferences. The chapter begins by offering explanations for Jewish liberalism, and then reviews the voting patterns of Jews in the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, with emphasis on the 2004 presidential race between Bush and Kerry—the last campaign before the data for this study were collected. The socio-demographic and religio-ethnic indicators from the previous chapters are inserted into the matrix of factors to explain differences between Jews and non-Jews in political orientation

Keywords:   voting patterns, liberalism, sociological approach, Bush, Kerry, Israel
