BY THE NUMBERS – Antisemitism in America

A new Anti-Defamation League (ADL) survey has good news and bad news to relay about anti-Semitism in America today. Despite the 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.”

12% of Americans hold antisemitic views, a 3% decline since the organization’s previous poll in 2011.

14% of respondents said Jews have too much power in the U.S.

30% said American Jews are more loyal to Israel than to the U.S.

26% blame Jews for the death of Jesus Christ.
