The Glass Is 85% Full

The ADL concludes from its latest survey that 15% of Americans have “unquestionably antisemitic” views. Interestingly, this proportion matches perfectly the percentage of Americans who said, in a different survey, that they wouldn’t want a Jewish president.

In any case, according to a recent Pew survey, we’re better liked than many other religious groups: 76% of Americans say they view Jews favorably and only 9% say they view us unfavorably. That’s better than prevailing views of Muslims (43%-35%), Mormons (53%-27%, and even Evangelicals (60%-19%) and Catholics (76%-14%). So we’re doing pretty well by comparison.
