American Jews turn out to be the religious group most opposed to the Iraq War (77 percent say it was a mistake) unless you count “black Protestants” as a separate group (which maybe you should) in which case we come out as only the second most opposed, since 78 percent of black Protestants say it was a mistake. By contrast, even the dread “no religion” group only musters 66 percent in opposition (Mormons, incidentally, love war).

Among Jewish Democrats, a whopping 89 percent say the war was a mistake. The rest are on Joe Lieberman’s staff and will probably be switching parties soon.
