National Review;10/17/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 21, p1250
The article argues that American Jews will vote for a political party supporting a conservative public policy during election in the U.S. Jews are important in any election in that they are spread out in large important states which choose presidents. Basically, issues surrounding the state of Israel, the preservation of their middle-class status and their community are important when Jewish voting is considered.
