During Trump's two months in office, American Jews gave the U.S. president a job approval rating of 31 percent, while the average during the same period was 42 percent.
The gap could be explained by the community's heavy tilt toward the Democratic Party, with 64 percent of U.S. Jews leaning toward the Democrats, compared to 29 percent who identify with Trump's Republican Party.
These figures were also reflected in the Jewish approval rating of 65 percent for former U.S. President Barack Obama, a Democrat, some 13 percentage points above the national average of 52 percent
