Almost 60 percent of Republicans have an unfavorable view of Omar. Clearly the minority who support her, support jihad, Jew-hatred and sharia.

A plurality of Americans have a negative view of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), according to a new poll conducted by pollster John McLaughlin for the Hudson Institute.
The poll, published Tuesday, shows that 40 percent of Americans hold an unfavorable view of Omar, while 21 percent view her favorably. Twenty-three percent had no opinion.
Partisan views: Thirty-four percent of Democrats polled had a positive view of Omar while 21 percent viewed her unfavorably. According to the poll, 58 percent of Republicans have an unfavorable view of Omar.
“To be a freshman Congressman, after a few months to be known to 85 percent of the voters and it to be 2 to 1 negative among voters with an opinion, that really takes a lot of hard work,” McLaughlin said during a presentation at the Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C.
On antisemitism: Asked if the Democratic Party is doing enough to combat antisemitism within its ranks, 48 percent of respondents said the party isn’t doing enough, while only 22 percent were satisfied with the House leadership’s response to recent incidents of antisemitic rhetoric. Among Democrats, 38 percent believe their party is responding effectively to antisemitism, compared with 50 percent of independent voters, and 66 percent of Republicans, who think the opposite.
According to the poll, 50 percent of Americans — including 62 percent of Republicans and 44 percent of Democrats — believe that being anti-Israel is the new antisemitism, while about 25 percent disagree with the statement. The numbers are slightly higher among Jewish voters — 56 to 44 percent.
A clear majority of voters — 63 percent — disagree with the statement that one should be labeled as Islamophobic for criticizing Omar for her views on Israel.
