Skip to comments.Poll Shows Obama Getting Lowest Jewish Support Since Carter (59%)
Posted on 09/11/2012 7:11:37 PM PDT by dervish
President Obama may be enjoying a slight, if likely temporary, bounce in the polls this week. But one of the surveys showing him with a lead in a tight race over Mitt Romney also provides a breakdown of the data that confirms predictions that he is losing up to a quarter of the Jewish votes he got in 2008. The Investors Business Daily/Christian Science Monitor/TIPP Poll gives a breakdown of religion along with other demographic groups and shows Obama leading among Jews by a margin of 59 to 35 percent with six percent undecided. While that is still a majority it is a dramatic decline from the 78 percent of the Jewish vote he got four years ago.
Obama has a 46-44 percent lead over Romney in the TIPP poll. That means Obama is suffering from a decline in support throughout the electorate from his 2008 victory when he won 53 percent of the vote. But the presidents loss of approximately 25 percent of Jewish voters this year is not matched by a similar decline in any other demographic group.

I hope this means Florida will go for Romney.
Blowing off Bibi for Letterman may cut his support even more.
What makes Jews support Democrats in such high numbers. Strange
Promising, but let’s not get our hopes too high. For there will ALWAYS be a Christian conservative somewhere that will say something to the effect (as they have before): “We love Jews, that’s why we want to convert them to Jesus.”
Always seems to happen - maybe we’ll get lucky this time and not alienate them...
You know that we're missing in this country? Remember the debates William F Buckley and Milton Friedman would do on national TV back in the 60s, 70s and 80s? It's gone. We don't have anybody out there discussing conservatism on television anymore. Rush Limabugh and Mark Levin are the closest we have but they are on AM radio and it's not in a debate format.
It should be brought back.
Bob answered it correctly; there has always been - and I’ve heard it - a fear that Jews would be forced to convert under a “Christian evangelical Republican” administration.
I can’t understand how 59% of any voting block would support Obozo after the last four years of tearing this country down.
I don’t see how anyone, especially Jewish, could study WW II and not fear centralized government and political hero-worship.
Well, a lot of them aren't very good Jews at all, but rather "secular jews"...whatever that means.
Boy I'll say, a bunch of wild-eyed P/M baby-killing socialists.
Lets see. Romney is winning Independents by 10 point plus. 0bama is losing 35% plus of the Jewish vote. Republicans have highest number of people saying they are Republican........HOW THE HELL IS 0BAMA AHEAD????????
I guess O'Reilly or Hannity bomb throwing with Alan Colmes and/or Juan Williams doesn't count, then?
Dems pay people not to work. At least until the money runs out.
So stop exporting jobs.
Really good question..how is Obama ahead..oh its battleground states dems keep talking about..
Over-sampling Dems by 10346%
Mostly, its abortion. My Mom made some friends at a support group for Jewish women who are widowers and they ALL support Obama, when she asked them why she said it was because they didnt want Republicans taking away a woman’s “Right to have an abortion.” Even after the DNC delegates BOOED Israel, even after the horrible way Obama has treated Israel, I still saw on one of her friends facebook page two days ago a photo from “Women for Obama” yeah the idiot still supports him. When I told this to my Mom she said “What a dumb ass.”
Those Jrws supporting 0bama wold probably vote for Hitler before Romney. They are a difficlt group that I cannot understand. A minority are very good people. A majority choose evil at every opportnity.
