Skip to comments.Gallup poll: No erosion in support for Obama among Jewish American voters
Posted on 07/05/2011 6:25:03 AM PDT by markomalley
President Obama enjoys strong, steady support from Jewish Americans amid concerns that he faced an erosion in their backing.
A new Gallup Poll found Monday that 60 percent of Jewish Americans said they approve of the way Obama is handling his job, a figure that's relatively consistent with the high level of support he's enjoyed from that bloc this year.
Thirty-two percent of Jewish Americans said they disapprove of the way the president is handling his job, a figure that hasn't really jumped since May 19, when Obama delivered a major speech outlining a peace process for Israelis and Palestinians.
That speech was sharply rebuked by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and spurred speculation especially on the right that Jewish voters who had been aligned with Democrats might shift their support away from Obama.
That storyline has prompted some coverage, and Democrats have been sensitive to the charge; the Democratic National Committee recently went out of its way to boast that a fundraiser featuring Jewish Democrats in Washington was oversold.
The Gallup Poll, conducted throughout June, has a 7 percent margin of error.
What did Mark Levin call these people? Something about self-loathing or something along those lines?
It has always been thus...
Always and will remain so; many are uninformed but most are just archliberal (Maude the TV show kind of liberal) beyond even Obama.
Once Omoslem destroys Israel, the American Jews will probably bounce back up to 80% approval.
Every time he sends Hamas money, he gains a point.
Get a grown up to read and interpret this for you.
How exactly do they poll Jews? How do they know they are Jewish? Is there a master list of Jewish voters?
Permanent dupes of the perennial rookie!
PLUS OR MINUS 7 PERCENT!!
This report is utter bull.
They are Jewish. And they will be Jewish whether Israel exists as a State or not.
The two are not at all the same to them.
All polls have a statistical margin of error. The results are still valid.
Jewish Democrat Liberals? .................... “TRADITION”.
For a long time now, the polls have become “mind altering” tools. Don’t believe everything you read.
Who else are they going to vote for?
It wouldn’t be cool to vote for a republican. Just ask Jon Stewart.
That was and is my question as well -
what is their definition of a “Jewish voter”?
Someone who has Jewish ancestry and only attends the synagogue as if it’s an ethnic country club is not “Jewish” to my definition, for what that’s worth.
The report is not utter bull because unfortunately Jewish Americans are extremely liberal. It’s always sad listening to Jewish conservatives like Dennis Praeger analyzing “why” Jewish Americans are so liberal.
I think, in the case of Jewish libs, it’s just a matter of defying the Christians.
This is beyond Epic Stupid.
This is foolishness on a Biblical level.
Obama is the new Golden Calf.
Unfortunately, today, there is no Moses.
So the Biblically Foolish and Epically Stupid Jews will romp and play all day long with their new Golden Calf, while across the ocean, Israel is murdered.
Why does this "seem reasonable"?
It seems reasonable that US Jews, who by definition do-not-live-in-Israel.....might not be big Zionists. They are Jewish. And they will be Jewish whether Israel exists as a State or not. The two are not at all the same to them
Do you detect a significant drop in support among Jewish folks? (I'm not talking about Jewish FReepers who are disgusted by him, always have been, always will be; I'm talking about the population in general)
I sure haven't.
No doubt polls can be forced one way or another, depending on how questions are asked.
The American Jewish connection to Liberalism has been reported fairly consistantly over the past 20 or 30 years, so the Obama support is really not surprising.
I’m just wondering how long it will be, after the official death of the US, until another free and great nation emerges. We have ceded liberty and self-determination to the greedy, the envious, the slothful, and those who self-identify as ‘intellectuals’. They collectively have harmed more people than is easily imaginable.
I am excruciatingly aware my co-religionists lean left, but based on other larger polls and my daily interactions, the Gallup poll reads like Soetero propaganda.
Did they make the telephone calls on a non-obvious Jewish holiday, thereby insuring no orthodox Jews were polled? Etc. Etc.
Then this poll is propaganda.
Note to Gallup: Hope your reputation was worth it...
They will walk into the showers still expecting a correction.
Thus it has ever been so.
This is about more than just Israel. Marxism hurt everyone ( except the oligarchy) in every nation its been tried. Yet....Jews are the smartest people, as group, on earth and the majority vote in the dumbest manner imaginable.
What’s going on here? Could someone explain this to me?
They must work on Wall Street and loved BO’s bailouts of their employers. It’s always nice to get someone else’s money.
Oi Vey! I kvetch everytime I see stat’s like this.
It’s not going to stop them from trying.
And thousands upon thousands will die in the attempts.
Obama is evil. Plain and simple.
"They" may not even be as smart as the top end in China ~ still leaves them at #3 of course ~ but once deposed I suppose that put them in a blue funk that makes them putty in the hands of Obama's handlers.
He got 78% of Jewish vote in 2008 and now has a 60% approval rating. That’s an 18% drop then way I look at it. Anyway the blind support comes from what I cal JINO’s, Jews in name only.
As I do whenever I see someone using an apostrophe in a plural!
And so it will remain, until the last of the Offen Juden are once again marched off to the ovens. For some reason, my co-religionists are fatally bewitched with collectivism. Given their less than desirable fate under the collectivism of the Third Reich, that they still support the ‘same old, same old’ under Obama leads me to believe the following may be correct:
1. Rumors about the IQ of Jews may be exaggerated.
2. Data regarding the education of Jews may be in need of revision.
PS Jews had no better results with collectivism in Israel, as the sorry results of the kibbutz clearly indicate.
PPS Collectivism not only is ‘Theft’, is kills people.
Go to any synagogue which is not Orthodox and ask them.
The answers will be a paradox to any American.
Voting wise, I expect very few of my co-religionists to vote GOP, but their turnout will decline come 2012.
Of course, Jewish vote totals are tiny, and, as noted elsewhere on this thread, it's the huge piles of money controlled by some of my tribe that makes the Dimocrat world go 'round. Those folks are simply circumcised commies, for whom organized religion is a game for morons.
That's in the Washington DC area ~ and we haven't seen one of those stickers in months.
It looked new.
Obama and his running dog lackeys have LOST the support of several of their natural constituencies around here.
Obama, Israel and the Jewish vote
By JPOST EDITORIAL
Obama will undoubtedly continue to enjoy wide support among American Jewry, but this does not mean his Mideast policies will be good for Israel.
Judging from voting trends during the past three decades, Democratic President Barack Obama can rest assured that he will receive a majority of Jewish votes in the 2012 presidential election. Even Ronald Reagan, who was the only modern Republican presidential candidate to seriously challenge Democrats dominance among Jews, mustered just 39 percent of the Jewish vote in the 1980 elections. Subsequent Republican candidates have received anywhere from 11% to 24% of the Jewish vote. In the last elections, John McCain received 22% to Obamas 78%.
“I had no clue this is how that population segment feels about Obozo.”
It is not just the RaceMarxist.
GENERALLY speaking, this demographic has an inexplicable fondness for Communism in general.
