It wasn’t just Chareidim who overwhelmingly voted for President Donald Trump. Other Orthodox Jews did as well. Including Modern Orthodox Jews.
And if he runs again in 2020, you’ll see pretty much the same Orthodox Jewish voting patterns breaking for him.August 18, 2017 11:49 am at 11:49 am #1341835iacisrmmaParticipant
Haimy: Did you really want us to vote for H. Clinton?August 18, 2017 3:17 pm at 3:17 pm #1342534👑RebYidd23Participant
A two party system where you have to vote for the lesser of two evils is a one party system.August 18, 2017 3:57 pm at 3:57 pm #1342549iacisrmmaParticipant
Bottom line is that the major areas where we voted were in states that Trump lost so our votes didn’t make a difference. Just remember, without NY and CA, Hillary would have lost the popular vote.August 18, 2017 4:13 pm at 4:13 pm #1342580
She would have lost the popular even without just California OR New York.
But it’s interesting to note that the virtually all the voting districts that have an Orthodox Jewish majority, gave Trump a strong majority of their vote. Literally like deep red states. Even though they are surrounded by districts that voted strongly Democrat.August 18, 2017 4:54 pm at 4:54 pm #1342598akupermaParticipant
The radical left hates hareidim. Trump is opposing them, whereas the Democrats embrace them (even when the alt-left engages in deliberate violence against the politically incorrect. The alt-right is harmless, and Trump is making sure they stay marginalized and out of trouble. On other matters, Trump is pretty much as advertised. While Trump would be better off he he stuck to having a kosher phone and skipping the Lashon Hora, hareidim really don’t impose themselves on other people (no matter what the hilonim say — so if Trump wants to get trouble for using his smartphone, its his business).August 18, 2017 6:03 pm at 6:03 pm #1342643mw13Participant
Chareidim overwhelmingly voted for Trump

Look at NY Board of Elections voting results data from majority Orthodox districts in places like Boro Park, Williamsburg, Flatbush, Monsey as well as Lakewood, NJ.August 19, 2017 10:50 pm at 10:50 pm #1342747Sam2Participant
It was a bad choice, but most Orthodox Jews think that HRC would have been a worse one. Who can blame them?August 19, 2017 10:58 pm at 10:58 pm #1342757
They were right.
And they’d do it again. And if he’s the Republican candidate next time, the Orthodox will again vote for him.August 19, 2017 11:35 pm at 11:35 pm #1342763
If you look at Orthodox majority voting districts in presidential elections, not just 2016 but any presidential election in the last 30 years, if you didn’t know those districts were in New York or New Jersey, you’d be sure you were looking at voting results in a deep red state in the heart of Texas or Alabama, as the results are heavily Republican.August 19, 2017 11:35 pm at 11:35 pm #1342765CTLAWYERParticipant
Proud to have voted for Clinton. Hope you’re all satisfied with the offensive buffoon in the White House. Who will he offend next?August 20, 2017 1:35 am at 1:35 am #1342797
In Lakewood, Donald Trump outpolled Hillary Clinton 18,139 to 5,927 – in percentage of votes won, it was 74.3 to 24.3, his biggest margin in the state among towns with populations greater than 10,000. (Overall, Clinton won New Jersey by 13 percentage points.)August 20, 2017 8:08 am at 8:08 am #1342805CuriosityParticipant
As bad as the political climate is under Trump, I would still rather have him than that sleazy Clinton because unlike her, he actually cares about the country. The only reason Trump’s presidency is in the shape that it’s in right now is because the Democrats didn’t even have the decency to give the man a chance. He started off well, but things fell apart with time under all the pressure from the obstructionist on the left, and now the Rinos.August 20, 2017 8:10 am at 8:10 am #1342807yehudayonaParticipant
I couldn’t bring myself to vote for either of them. I did a write-in. I’ve always voted for a major party candidate in the past (sometimes Democrat, sometimes Republican). I’m hoping we have a major party candidate I can vote for in 2020, but the way things are going, I doubt it.
Pundits are predicting Trump will be out long before 2020. He may be wearing a jumpsuit that matches his orange complexion.August 20, 2017 8:12 am at 8:12 am #1342810👑RebYidd23Participant
Hillary would have been better because she’s corrupt to the core, and that means she would have kept her cool and not done anything rash.August 20, 2017 8:14 am at 8:14 am #1342812
And of the 24% of the vote Clinton received in Lakewood, it can fairly be assumed a large majority came from the non-Jewish voters in Lakewood — who are the Clinton voting demographic. (In fact, it is about the same percentage of non-Jews/non-Orthodox living in Lakewood.)
So the Orthodox vote for Donald Trump is likely in the upper 90s (95+%) percentage points.August 20, 2017 8:20 am at 8:20 am #1342833gildaParticipant
Let’s support Trump and not stand up against him hhe’s still better than Obama for the country and Israel – and of course better than Hillary. We thought Bush was great until he ordered the raid in Agri Processors.August 20, 2017 8:41 am at 8:41 am #1342819E120Participant
Hillary would have been like four more years of Obama. Terrible for Israel. Terrible for religious freedom. Trump has a lot of problems but he’s not as bad.
