  1. 2. Depends how you measure it. Do you first control for Jewish representation among wealthy individuals? Do you then control for general Jewish voting or political contribution patterns? Another variable to control for is publicity: two individuals can be equally ultrarich, but if one is more of a public figure than the other there will be different incentives on him, pressuring him to support the PC candidate.

    If you don’t control for this kinda stuff, you only end up showing what is already obvious: that Jews tend to do well financially, and that the modal Jewish vote is for Democrats. You would miss the abnormally huge standard deviation in Jewish political orientations, which to me seems important to any sensible discussion of Jewish influence on politics.

    The question of why the modal Jewish political position is Leftist is an interesting one and worth investigating, but it demands a qualitative rather than quantitative answer. Maybe I’ll write about it someday.

    1. “Do you first control for Jewish representation among wealthy individuals?”

      -Of course. I said “of the same wealth level”.

      “Do you then control for general Jewish voting or political contribution patterns?”

      -What do you mean by this?

      “You would miss the abnormally huge standard deviation in Jewish political orientations”

      -Is it really that abnormally huge, though? I think the US gentile White SD in political orientations is larger (e.g., as in the case of Vermont v. Mississippi).

  2. “Do you then control for general Jewish voting or political contribution patterns?” “What do you mean by this?”

    If 75% of Jews supported Trump but 75% of ultrarich Jews were donating to Hillary’s campaign fund, that would be a remarkable anomaly worth looking at closely. If 75% of Jews support Clinton no matter their income levels, then the “ultrarich” part of the question isn’t very interesting.

    “Is it really that abnormally huge, though? I think the US gentile White SD in political orientations is larger (e.g., as in the case of Vermont v. Mississippi).”

    I think Jews have an abnormally huge SD of political orientations for their size, ethnic and religious homogeneity, etc. Obviously if you compare Jews to ALL gentile Whites that goes away somewhat, but there are something like thirty times more gentile Whites than Jews, and “gentile Whites” includes dozens of religious and ethnic groups. (In fact you might say the ethnic/religious SD of American Whites is abnormally huge too!)
