Jews do not think white Southerners have too much influence: A reader has suggested that, while Jews are not anti-Christian, they are in favor of Christianity have less influence in American society. The GSS does not ask about this, but it does ask if you think that southern whites have too much influence. While 12% percent of all Americans and 33% of blacks agree, only 9% of Jews do. Frankly, this low number surprises me since I figured that most Jews are liberals, and many liberals resent the influence of conservative Christians. But there it is.
