AMI Magazine polled 700 Orthodox Jews, across 15 states, in which 89 percent of them approve of him, while 5 percent did not, and 6 percent were undecided.

Ninety-one percent of respondents said Trump should not be impeached, while only 5 percent said he should.

Additionally, 92 percent said they trust the president and Republicans more than the Democrats and US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the issue of antisemitism.
