If the U.S. elections were held today—three weeks before the Nov. 3 election—83% of Orthodox Jews would vote for U.S. President Donald Trump, according to a poll released on Wednesday.

An Ami magazine poll of 1,000 Orthodox Jews in 22 states reported that only 13% of respondents would vote for former Vice President Joe Biden, while 4% said someone else or noted that they were undecided.

In response to the question of how Trump “is covered by the mainstream media,” 76% said “mostly unfair,” 14% said “mostly fair,” and 10% replied neither or not sure.

The Republican incumbent has overwhelming support from the Orthodox Jewish community—compared to overwhelming opposition from the overall American Jewish community—because of his favourable policies towards Israel and the Jewish community.
