AJC 2011 Survey of U.S. Jewish Opinion

AJC national radio message

September 27, 2011 – New York – The AJC weekly radio messages are broadcast on the CBS radio network, before The Osgood File. All AJC radio commentaries since 2001 are available at www.ajc.org/radiocommentary.


The full text of this week’s commentary follows: 

When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of Palestinian efforts to unilaterally seek recognition of statehood without reaching an agreement with Israel?” 88 percent of American Jews disapprove.

That’s one finding in the just-released 2011 AJC Survey of American Jewish Opinion.

For years, AJC has been polling American Jews on a range of issues. The findings are widely cited.

As always, the 2011 survey offers a treasure-trove of fascinating and, at times, surprising data.

Want to know how American Jews view the upcoming presidential elections?

It’s in the survey.

Or how they view the state of the economy?

It’s also there.

Want to know if American Jews are more or less optimistic than a year ago about prospects for Middle East peace?

It’s there.

And want to know if American Jews think the current effort to stop Iran’s nuclear ambitions will work?

It’s there, too.

To see all the polling data, visit ajc.org.
