Yet another weird SF fan


I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Let's Turn This Around

According to Mark Kleiman (defending the claim that the Democratic party is the legitimate heir of the Sanhedrin):

The Solomon Project has some data. It looks as if Jewish women are more Jewish in their voting patterns than Jewish men, and that attending synagogue weekly makes you less Jewish in the voting booth.
In other words, voting Democratic makes us less Jewish in the synagogue.

I also noticed an anomaly in the research cited:

While there have been indications that Bush captured a majority of Orthodox Jewish voters and Russian Jewish voters, the study found that "sample sizes for both of these subgroups were either unavailable or too small in all surveys to make any definitive claims regarding their partisan attachments in 2004."

………

The report notes that one relatively strong Republican subgroup among Jews includes Jewish men under 30 years of age, who voted 35 percent for Bush in one survey.

If they could find a decent sample size for Jewish men under 30 years of age but couldn't find one for Orthodox Jews, they must have been avoiding the Orthodox.
