Yes, OK, Teribus, not twice as likely but the survey found that one in four (25%) Britons believed that Jews chase money more than other British people, a figure which rose to 39% of those participants who identified themselves as UKIP voters. So, more than 50% more likely. Still a damn site more than anyone else. As I revisited the survey I also spotted the related crime figures. I suggest you have look at them and note the prevalence of right wing fanatics amongst those who have been successfully prosecuted.
I also suggest you look up recently published government paper, produced by a multi party committee, which gives this statement -
This report focuses to some extent on the Labour Party, because it has been the main source of recent allegations of antisemitism associated with political parties. It should be emphasised that the majority of antisemitic abuse and crime has historically been, and continues to be, committed by individuals associated with (or motivated by) far-right wing parties and political activity. Although there is little reliable or representative data
on contemporary sources of antisemitism, CST figures suggest that around three-quarters of all politically-motivated antisemitic incidents come from far-right sources.
However, the fact that incidents of antisemitism—particularly online—have made their way into a major political party is a new and deplorable phenomenon, and one which has not recently affected the mainstream right wing of British politics. It is particularly shocking that it should affect a party whose founding principles are based on equality.
I have not taken to emboldening the passages I wish to draw attention to as some have but I suggest you read and understand the last sentence of the first paragraph.
