Settler and National voting patterns
A closer look at the voting patterns within the settlements clarifies the differences among them. In
order to understand the voting patterns, we created 6 subgroups of settlements, each with specific
characteristics: 1. National Religious settlements; 2. Large, un-orthodox settlements; 3.
Ultraorthodox settlements; 4. “Quality of Life” settlements; 5. Secular and or mixed (secular and
national religious) settlements; 6. Secular settlements in the Jordan Valley.
