New Poll: Obama’s Jewish Support Stands at 64%
Algeneiner.com ^ | 6/8/12 | staff

Posted on 06/08/2012 2:23:08 PM PDT by Nachum

A Gallup poll released on Friday shows 64% of registered Jewish voters currently support President Obama’s re-election, while 29% support Mitt Romney.

“Among Jews, Obama’s current 64% to 29% advantage compares with a 74% to 23% advantage before the election in 2008,” Gallup writes in its new poll, entitled ‘Mormons Widely Favor Romney, Jewish Voters Back Obama’. “Thus, he is running 10 points lower among Jewish registered voters than in 2008, which is five points worse than his decline among all registered voters compared with 2008.”

The Republican Jewish Coalition notes the 29% of Jewish voters who support Romney, represents the “highest level of Jewish support for a Republican presidential candidate in 24 years.”

Apparently 64% of Jews hate Israel as much as Obama does.

From the poll report:

“This poll is another sign of the erosion of support for Obama among Jewish voters. If the President wins just 64% of the Jewish vote, it would be a disaster for him and his party. Jewish voters are increasingly disillusioned with the President and that’s why Mitt Romney is making real inroads in the Jewish community this year.” RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks said in a statement to reporters.

Frequently that 60/70 to 40/30 division in any given interest, ethnic, religious or other identifiable voting group will presage a major break from alignment with the Republicans to the Democrats or vice versa.

An example ~ in 1960 JFK got 70% of the black vote and Nixon got 30%. In 1964, as the intro to the next 25 years of political realignment, LBJ Got 97% of the black vote and Goldwater got a negligible number.

At the moment it looks like the Jews are posed to jump back in the Democrat party if given a chance (60/40) but you could see something entirely different ~ like maybe 10/90 Dem/Rep by this Fall.

If the teachers' unions in Greater New York catch the drift of what's going on regarding government school teachers in such places as Wisconsin, they'll be looking for A MORE POWERFUL FRIEND.

Jews seem to be heavily in favor of some form of collectivism, so they vote that way. I think they are waking up to the realization that an amateur, idiot, and narcissist is a bad idea—even if he shares their ideology.

What a headscratcher. Does 64% have a suicide gene?

before, during and after WWII we got the runners. That gene pool doesn't "fight", they survive and try to work within the system for their benefit and their family. The fighters were the ones that ended up in Poland, Israel and dead. The ones that "got along " or were smart enough to leave are here. So their fight or flight response is ......uh.... flight. They're the ones that figure if the SHTF they'll be looked upon as "the good American Jew" and not the hell raising liberty loving one.

I know several >10-12 Jewish families and know that only one has weapons of any kind. The one however has enough survival gear, ammo and weapons to arm a platoon. His mother was taken to the camps and he has no qualms about saying that before someone comes to "knock on the door", he'll fight. Because he said he didn't want to be seen on video running to an open pit while soldiers put a bullet in your back and bury you in a field while laughing like those old WWII videos of the Germans lining up the Jews who passively complied.

Obama’s Jewish Support Stands at 64%

Israel should return to pre-1967 borders?
Over $100 million support to the palistinians?
These 64% idiots must have brain damage or be completely out of touch with reality.

They are-but I'm not. I'm a conservative Jew and I've voted Republican my entire adult life. OK, I did vote for a Dem one time, but that was 20 years ago.

But the fact that it's down to 64 percent support for Obozo is good news to me. I think Romney will win FL anyway, but the fact that more Jews will vote GOP will make that prospect even more certain.

Obama could bow to the saudi king, say the prettiest sound is the muslim call to prayer, turn NASA into a muslim outreach org, put extremist in all across the ME, bully Bibi, meet w CAIR hundreds of times

And majority of Jews probably would still support him.

Oh wait . . . . . . . . ..

This 64% number was actually much lower 54 % than it is was during Obama Israel offensive berating and humiliating Bibi....trying to pressure him to capitulate to Obama’s ridiculous middle east polices...it was in the upper 70 ‘s when he took office...

The new number of 64 approval rating is only after months of a Obama charm offensive toward the Jewish community

My gut tells me they may still support him in word, but in deed (money) ...

Forget about it ....

Crap headline, meaningless statistics, as always, when speaking of the jew vote.

There are approx. 6.5 million jews in the US (as of 2011) almost 3 million live in 2 RAT states - California & New York.

Jews are terrified of Christians. Even though evangelicals are the best friend Israel ever had. They fear that Christians will take away the holy sacraments of abortion and gay marriage. Even worse,they fear that their daughters will gasp...MARRY a Gentile. Alan Dershowitz has made this clear.

A Jew marrying a Gentile is an incredible offense.

"how in the hell could he have ANY support from Jews?????"

Promiscuity = r-selection types
There are generally two kinds of Jewish people those that follow the torah and those that don't. Those that follow the torah are in the minority and are mostly conservative.

Those that don't are often promiscuous which is the bases of socialistic belief system.

I agree with you, if they keep it down to 64% or hopefully lower, then that means a lot of money and influence that he doesn’t get.

The extra bonus is that it makes us feel better, a consistent 78/79% seems hostile to America.

That’s a strong statement that some will take offense to.

Unfortunately, it’s also correct.

Sometimes the truth is difficult to accept. But that does not make it less true...

Given that Gallup tends to oversample Democrats, I'd put O's Jewish support at more like 60% on that basis alone. And when you consider that this polling started in April and that Obama seems to be slipping across the board since then, the real number currently is somewhere in the 50s - which is what I predicted he'd eventually get about a year ago. That would mean that about one in five Jewish voters will be a former Obamaton who votes Republican this year - quite a notable swing, I should think, with big implications for Florida, especially.

Matt Brooks at the Republican Jewish Coalition should be excited about this, but there's a lot more work to be done within the Jewish community to build the GOP brand and to break the addiction of too many Jews to the 'Rats.
