    The last time a Republican presidential candidate outpolled his Democratic opponent among Jewish voters was 1916, when the progressive vote was split by the socialist Eugene Debs.

        And Wilson was an anti-Semite, not to mention general racist, and Progressive himself.

          He was not a Progressive, as the political term was then known.

            He was a Progressive as the term is used today. That is what I meant by it.

            Wilson wanted to enlarge the role of the federal government, get the US involved in his version of the UN and an international government, and expand the social-welfare state.

                Actually he was. He was viewed as favoring a number of -- what were viewed at the time -- progressive causes: new labor policies and organizations, currency control, lower tariffs, Federal income tax, agricultural supports.

                When Congress created a separate cabinet-level Department of Labor on March 4, 1913, Wilson strengthened his support among progressives by appointing a former union official, William Wilson, as secretary of labor.

                In 1916, Wilson nominated Louis Brandeis, a staunch progressive who had fought in court against the exploitation of women and children workers, to the Supreme Court. He was the first Jewish justice on the Court. Following Brandeis's nomination, Wilson supported improved credit for farmers and workers' compensation for federal employees. He then pushed through a law to eliminate child labor, but the Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional in 1918. When American railroad unions threatened to strike in 1916, Wilson supported and signed into law a bill securing an eight-hour workday for railroad employees—the Adamson Act, which paved the way to shortened workdays for all industrial workers.

                It would seem that the only "progressive" planks that Wilson actively opposed were racial desegregation and women's suffrage.
