Yossi Gestetner in POLITICO Regarding Turnout of Hasidic Voters in Brooklyn

From Politico:

In the Brooklyn-based 7th District seat where Rep. Nydia Velazquez has a competitive challenge, reports Yossi Gestetner, Hasidim could amount to 25 percent of the vote.

“If both sides of Satmar in Williamsburg in addition to the smaller Hasidic sects bring their herd to the polling places, it may produce more than 9,000 votes,” writes Gestetner, a Hasidic operative. “This will be 25% of the 36,000 voters that may show up on Tuesday.”

For the record, total turnout was 24,279 votes and more than 9,000 Hasidim voted; making them more than 30% of the vote.
