Hmm, a Jewish Republican ~ back then?

Give me a break. They were all Roosevelt people in those days.

This sounds like one of those "program seminar people" arguments ~ the old "I was a Republican until so and so won".

No, that's not how it works. NO SANE PERSON would give up being a Republican just so he could vote for a Democrat.

Besides, Nixon wasn't known as "the great anti-semite", he was known as "the great anti-communist", and until quite recently, historically speaking, being a commie wasn't all that big a problem with many Jewish people, so if they wanted to be soft on communism and hate Nixon because he wasn't, that is more a Jewish problem than a Nixon problem (taking that Kissinger thing and flipping it to Helen Gahagan Douglas).

Next time you're at the Nixon Library stop by that little exhibit where there's this Democrat campaign flyer prepared by Douglas forces that accuses Nixon of voting against NATIONAL DEFENSE.

That, right there, is when Nixon picked up one of Douglas' earlier opponents claims that she was "pink right down to her panties".

It worked. He got 59% of the vote.

The tapes having been public for many years now, my reaction is as it always is, how stupid was Nixon. Tapes, well OK, I have a bad memory and they'd be handy writing memoirs, but he knew there was a fireplace in the White House, why did they survive.
