Jews Make Up 8.4 Percent of Incoming 111th Congress vs. Only 1.7 Percent of the Total American Population

From White Reference
It is well known that American Jews are disproportionately represented in the mass media, the entertainment business, and the financial industry. As recently as December 19th, 2008, Joel Stein, a Jewish columnist for the Los Angeles Times, starkly reaffirmed and orgiastically celebrated their dominance of the entertainment industry in his column.
However, a recently-released report by the Pew Forum for Religion and Public Life, which included a breakdown of the faiths and denominations of the members of the incoming 111th Congress, shows that Jews are also disproportionate in Congress as well, constituting 8.4 percent of its membership, as opposed to just 1.7 percent of the overall population. The Pew report is available HERE; the 15-page appendix listing all individual members of Congress is HERE.
And, as expected, some Jewish members of Congress are more financially beholden to Israel than others. Click HERE to find out about pro-Israel PAC contributions to members of Congress through 2007-08. Then compare to the names listed below.

You’ll note that of all the Jews in Congress, only two are Republican. This reflects the larger national pattern of Jews voting Democratic. The preponderance is persistent and overwhelming; 78 percent of Jews voted for Obama in 2008. As a matter of fact, since the Jewish Presidential vote was first tracked in 1916, only once has a majority of Jews voted for a Republican, Warren Harding in 1920.
