On Thursday, October 3rd, the Pat Brown Institute (PBI) for Public Affairs at Cal State LA released the findings of its recent poll of Los Angeles County’s Jewish voters. The survey briefing was held at the Wilshire Boulevard Temple (Erika J. Glazer Family Campus) from 9:00am to 10:30am.
The Jewish poll is part of a groundbreaking, multiyear PBI project to survey four major racial and ethnic populations in Los Angeles County: the Asian American, Latino, African American, and Jewish communities. The Jewish poll illustrates how Jewish voters civically engage, their political priorities, and what they consider to be the key issues facing Los Angeles.
The poll is based on more than 1,800 interviews of registered Jewish voters and allows for analysis by age, gender, religious observance, and partisanship. The findings from the poll highlight how the County’s dynamic and diverse Jewish community views President Trump, the threat of anti-Semitism, and the 2020 election. It also explores the attitudes of Jews towards the State of Israel, gun control, the Affordable Care Act, same-sex marriage, and immigration.
