The Jewish vote in presidential politics has never been very big; only around two percent. Yet the significance of how Jews vote can not be overstated. Since such data was first collected no Democrat has ever won the presidency with less than 2/3 of the Jewish vote.
In 2008 Barack Obama got 78% Jewish support, but as they say, that was then and this is now. Obama has done everything possible to insult and belittle Israel and those who love the Jewish State.
The snubs of Israeli officials including Benjamin Netanyahu its Prime Minister. Obamas stubborn insistence that Jerusalem is NOT the capital of Israel has turned a little point turned into a major attack on Israels sense of confidence in Obama and America.
His stated refusal to help Israel in the event of a necessary attack on Irans nuclear weapons factories has all but killed the once friendly relationship between the Jewish state and America. Not surprisingly, Obamas political blunders have begun to show in a survey of Jewish voters.
A new Investors Business Daily/Christian Science Monitor/TIPP Poll spells out the danger Barack Obama has brought upon himself in regard to the Jewish vote.
It found that while Obama leads overall by a slim 46/44 over Republican mitt Ryan ( a dubious claim in itself) his support among Jewish voters has fallen to just 59% a number reminiscent of 53% the anti Semitic Jimmy Carter got in his failed reelection campaign in 1980.
This sharp decline matches the decline in support among virtually every other group. In fact it casts substantial doubt about the truthfulness of the barrage of polls we are seeing.
At this point there are no groups Obama lost in 2008 that he is winning today.... or Jewish voters.

I will never understand American Jews who could vote for a Liberal with marked and increasing sympathies for anti-Semitic, global terrorists.
It HAS to be apparent that the anti-Semitism abroad will find its way here sooner and with much less opposition if we keep electing Presidents who tolerate it where ever it is!
If I was Jewish, I’d be very afraid for myself.
There is one thing for and one thing against Obama with the Jewish vote.
The thing for Obama is Jews are so committed to socialism that it would KILL them to vote for a republican.
The thing against is they are more educated voters - they read, they talk, they listen. They don’t like what they are hearing - and that’s why Clinton, whom they adore, was sent to S FL this week. Unlike the “Obama’s gonna buy me a house!” variety Amish voter.
