ADL Poll: 12 Percent Of Americans Hold Anti-Semitic Views, A 3 Percent Decline


swastika1A new Anti-Defamation League (ADL) survey found that 12 percent of Americans hold anti-Semitic views, a 3-percent decline since the organization’s previous poll in 2011.

Fourteen percent of respondents said Jews have too much power in the U.S., 30 percent said American Jews are more loyal to Israel than to the U.S., and 26 percent blame Jews for the death of Jesus Christ. Despite those numbers, ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman said the poll, which comes during his group’s centennial, “causes us to take a broader perspective, to appreciate how far we have come in 100 years.”

“In 1913 there were no surveys like this, but anti-Semitism was rife in public and private expressions, in universities, jobs and neighborhoods,” he said.
