A new survey taken on behalf of the Anti-Defamation League shows that 12 percent of Americans ‘”harbor deeply entrenched anti-Semitic attitudes,” John Martilla of Martilla Communications Group announced Thursday at the ADL’s 2013 Centennial Meeting in New York City.

The results mark a 3 percent decline since Martilla Communications Group and the ADL collaborated on a similar poll in 2011; an 8% decline since 1992; and a 16% decline since the ADL first posed the question to respondents in a 1964 survey.

The survey of 1200 adults was conducted via telephone between Oct 12th and 22nd.
