71% of American Jews voted for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in Tuesday’s presidential election, while only 24% backed her Republican opponent Donald Trump, according to a New York Times exit poll.

If true, that means that Trump fared worse among Jews than Mitt Romney did in 2012 (30%). In 2008, John McCain got 22% of the Jewish vote.

In an interview with The Algemeiner last week, attorney David Friedman — a senior Trump adviser — predicted the Republican candidate would win more Jewish support than Romney and McCain.

Speaking with The Algemeiner on Monday, Malcolm Hoenlein — the executive vice president of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations — said that US Jews must get out and vote on Election Day if they want to continue to be heard by politicians on matters of concern to them.
