Poll: Majority of Jewish Democrats find Obama 'naive' on Mideast
briefingroom.thehill.com ^ | August 12, 2009 | Jordan Fabian

Posted on 08/13/2009 4:19:53 AM PDT by Dubya-M-DeesWent2SyriaStupid!

A majority of Jewish Democrats oppose President Barack Obama's Israel policies according to a new poll commissioned by former Clinton administration pollster Dick Morris.

Morris' poll showed that while 58 percent of respondents think Obama is doing a good job promoting Middle East peace, 55 percent believe that he is "naive in thinking that the Palestinians would make peace" and that Palestinians "will just use the new land as a base to attack Israel like they did in Gaza."

The poll, conducted by Global Marketing Research Services in late July surveyed 500 Jews who voted for Obama in 2008.

Duh. They were told this before the election and yet they voted for Obama. They would vote for him again given the chance.

On average Jews have a higher IQ. It does not help them when they vote.

500 Jewish democrats are naive about 0bama if they voted for him. 0bama is working against Israel at every turn and standing up for his Muslim brothers, as he said he would do all along so it would be pretty naive to vote for him and hope for the best.

No way he will win re-election. He lost the independents, older people and now the Jewish vote.

ACORN and the devil himself can’t even pull it off for him, now.

0bama truly makes me sick. Hillary is overseas trash talking American and our elections process.They are all unqualified and out of touch with grassroots America.

Didn’t stop them before they voted him in. I hope they don’t have buyers remorse after Obama allows Israel to be destroyed.

The iguana looking Combs last night on the O reilly show distinguished himself by saying he was in favor of both Tutu and Robinson receiving the medal of freedom regardless of a few anti Israel comments they have made in the past. He is Jewish incidentally. I was aghast. Seems to me that is how Obama, as an extremely anti Israel President as anyone since 48, managed to garner the Jewish vote in the first place: Liberal first, Pro Israel further down the line.

[A majority of Jewish Democrats oppose President Barack Obama’s Israel policies]

They are much like the german Jews who supported Hitler and did not have the good sense to leave Germany when the monster was elected.
Those who do not learn that immoral men will always steal and murder and lie will never learn until the sorrows come upon them. American and European Jewish peoples who are leftist are as ignorant and foolish as so called Christians who are leftist.
The blind leading the blind.

Hey RAT Jews:

You voted for the Muslim because he's a fellow baby-killer. Now watch as he betrays your Israeli relatives.

With apologies to all our higher IQ'd conservative Jewish friends.

Jews voted 78-22 for Obama.

No Republican since 1924 has ever gotten more than 40% of the Jewish vote.

The left of America is totally ignorant of truth and their blindness has destroyed us in America and Europe.
God will defend Israel and destroy all her enemies by Christ Jesus at the end of the latter days tribulation when the armies of the antiChrist will try to destroy Israel on the mountains of Zion.
You know, Armageddon. Or maybe you need to search the Scriptures and make peace with God by Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, The King of Israel and of the whole earth.
People are stubborn and the truth generally unsettles them.

Concur 100%. They are the naive ones—even more so for continuing to cut Obama some slack. Obama has known what he was doing all along, including telling the Jews just what they want to hear.

I can’t see a major Jewish swing towards the GOP. If Bush and his team couldn’t do it, nobody will. I can, however, see Jews becoming a major (financial) backbone to a Hillary primary insurrection in 2011. The only thing Obama still has besides the radical left are the youth, and by then his socialist policies will have turned enough off to weaken him tremendously.

I don't think even that would dissuade the liberal retard American Jews from NOT voting for 0bozo or the demoRATs, no matter what atrocities or genocide is done to the nation of Israel. Ethnic voting blocs for demoRATs in this country are the most stupid, illogical groups of people who will ALWAYS vote for demoRATs, no matter what.

Maybe he will, maybe he won’t.

Even if he is not re-elected, he will lose while taking 80-90% of the Jewish vote.

The only other demographic that is so heavily in favor of Democrats is the African-American bloc.

“Duh. They were told this before the election and yet they voted for Obama. They would vote for him again given the chance.”

“majority of Jewish Democrats oppose President Barack Obama’s Israel policies”

Very perplexing especially after the Holocaust in Germany in the 1930’s.

El Predicto Speaks

Hillary has already put a shot across the Kenya Wonder Boy's bow. The real shooting won't start for another year.

The opening shot: Clinton towel boy Dick Morris' "Catastrophe."

Crystal Ball: Hillary resigns to go in primaries against BHO late in 2010. Her pro-Palestinian views will look moderate as compared to BHO, Jr.'s islamophilia. Plus, she'll be on Israel like white on rice for a month or two, really soon, working to cut the legs out from under Netanyahu.

In short, the Dems are going to throw Obama out for 2012. Ain't gonna be pretty. Blacks will stick with the Community Organizer. Jews will flock to Hillary, and if have my way, Romney and McCain will be under house arrest together in Honduras. Quick get me a candidate!

The Jewish people are not stupid or naive by any measure. By all accounts, as a group, they tend to have higher than average education, IQs, and income levels. The problem is the majority of them have adopted liberalism as their true faith and the Democrat Party as their temple. Most are very secular. Such distance from God has never served the Jewish people very well. They should reconnect with their faith and disconnect with left wing politics.

I doubt that's true. There are no statistics I'm aware of, feel free to provide them, and I doubt they'd even pick up Jews, who were less than 1% of the German population. About 65% did leave, others couldn't, and most couldn't get out of Europe, there being no one who would take them. Other than Palestine, but the Brits banned immigration. Of Jews, not Arabs.

Your source, jewishvirtuallibrary.com, should not necessarily be taken as very accurate. The table is from a book written by a very partisan Jewish ‘Rat (an official of the National Jewish Democratic Council, believe it or not), so their vote is likely to be somewhat overstated simply for partisan reasons. (Since when are Democrats known to use accurate numbers for anything?) Furthermore, polling techniques that may have been used to arrive at the numbers listed in the table were far from ideal, especially in the earlier years when polling techniques in general were much cruder than they are today.

"Naive" is the word the pollster used, not necessarily the individual respondents. Dickie Morris probably directed the pollster in the wording of the questions.
