I know that the results with the markers say that the results have a 80 percent probability but does that apply for the Jewish and Native American markers also or is it different for them because they are more distinct populations?

Raven,

Most people (80%) get these markers. That means it is possible to still get this ancestry if you have rare alleles that do not match others. The strongest indication of any ancestry is it match a specific population.

Hope this explains for you,

Jakay

Raven,

That 80 percent applies to all populations, however.
