California's Jewish voters upheld their liberal reputation in Tuesday's election, despite a strong effort by the Republican Jewish Coalition to focus on the Bush administration's pro-Israel record. While Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger won reelection by nearly 55 percent of the popular vote, 52% of the Jewish ballots went to his Democratic opponent Phil Angelides, according to Los Angeles Times polling director Susan Pinkus. Even in races in which Jewish votes aligned with the majority, the Jewish margin of support was much higher.
