Trump and the GOP are Trying to Make “Jexodus” Happen, But Most Jews Still Vote Democratic

posted on March 19, 2019

The Washington Post’s Eli Rosenberg writes about a GOP campaign called “Jexodus,” named after the combination of “Jewish” and “exodus,” which is trying to build American Jewish support for the party and President Trump. Former Trump campaign staffer Elizabeth Pipko, the spokeswoman for the group, appeared on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday to criticize Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar and claim that Jews are leaving the Democratic Party because of anti-Semitism. Rosenberg adds, “Polling data and experts interviewed by The Washington Post do not show a Jewish exodus from the Democratic Party in the Trump years.”
