Obama will win the Jewish vote by a smaller margin, but he’ll still win it.

They finally figured out Obama is in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood that wants to destroy their nation. Islam and Communism have joined forces to weaken the very foundations of this nation so that the Islamic empire can expand and absorb the U.S. as soon as they feel their power base and numbers are sufficient to pull it off. Glad the Jewish population in the U.S. Has finally woken up.

The INA poll, which was released after the first Presidential debate last night where Mitt Romney clearly buried a depressed and nervous Barack Obama, illustrates that over fifty percent of all democratic voters are now either unsure or committed to voting for the Romney team.

Is this all democrat voters or just Jewish democrats

Any Jews that votes for Obama is the equivalent of the German Jews that thought Kristallnacht would just be a singular occasion and not a harbinger.

I don’t know how one Jew could vote for him. I am not equating Obama to a Nazi, I’ll leave it to the other side to throw around those epithets. What rational, thinking Jewish person thinks Obama has their faith’s or homeland’s back?

...a confident, knowledgeable and aggressive Mitt Romney who was not intimated by the President's arrogance.

Let me see if I can understand this... was Romney implying zer0's arrogance? Was zer0 hinting or suggesting Romney was aggressive?

The way obamma has treated the Prime Minister of Israel ever since he entered office vs the way he embraces the moslems should have disgusted many Jewish Democrats to switch their vote in this election!

I certainly hope so! But I'm not holding out hope. My step-mother said, "I'm voting for Obama. I'm a liberal, and nobody can ever change that!" And a cousin left me speechless when she said "Obama is the best US President for Israel since Truman!"

My family is a lost cause.

I asked a Jewish republican friend of mine that very question. He said most Jews in the USA are Jews by race and don’t take the active practice of their alleged faith seriously. He said most at his synagogue who truly live pious lives of forbearance according to the scriptures will vote for Romney.

Obama will be lucky to get 30% of the Jewish vote this year.

That is the reason for the huge Democrat oversampling in the polls; they know that they are losing the intelligent Jews.

Uh-huh. I remain unconvinced.

For reasons I have NEVER been able to understand, the majority of Jews in America support the Dem Party despite the fact that the Dems hate Jews and wish that the Arabs would overrun and destroy Israel.

I don’t get it.

American Jews have always perceived the Democratic Party as being more sensitive and understanding to human issues.

Oh yeah, the KKK, Janet Reno, Rahm Emanuel et al...they're exactly like that.

A real sleeper issue for Jewish voters is the status of their children’s job prospects after college. Jews are traditionally more concerned with education at the college and graduate level than most, if not all, other demographic groups. Who knows how many Jewish parents are sitting on co-signed college and graduate school loans and watching their children still looking for work in that discipline they paid for. And now they are also on the hook for payments.

For once the checkbook issue triumphs their traditional belief systems.

Two of my clients are Jews but never go to the Synagogue or practice their faith. Both die hard Democrats always and forever whose favorite newspaper is the New York Times. Gave up long ago trying to have a sensible conservation with them about political issues long ago. I still, on occasion, cannot resist saying, “I tried to tell you so” though.

I fail to see how or why Obama is worshipped like a false god when it’s apparent how much he lies and how damaging his policies and actions are for our nation. I fail to see how the liberals cannot see his ties to the Muslim brotherhood, his hatred towards America and God, his disdain for the Constitution which he would desperately like to rid of the 1st and 2nd am,endments, his buildup of internal police elements which include over 2500 APCs, millions of rounds of ammunition, new NSA domestic spying station, microwave crowd dispersion vehicles, new technology which can retarget lightning bolts to use them as weapons (see Revelation 13:13), his passage of laws / legislation against the will of the people by circumventing Congress (Obamacare and other laws which pertain to the ability to protest and infringe on free speech), horrible foreign policy which has resulted in an emboldened terrorist element, his giving away foreign aid to terrorist elements....ok I’ll stop here but this could continue for pages...you get my drift.

Yet they are either too hypnotized, gullible, naive, stupid, or stubborn to understand that this President is a Manchurian Candidate with ties to Communist Part ideologies and that his real job is to remove America’s economic and military power for radical terrorist elements.

Most Jews, like everyone else, learn most of their behavior from their parents. I grew up a Democrat and quickly became a Conservative after carrying an M-16 in the Israel Defense Forces. Democrats and Liberals appeal to Jews as they offer a more humane image to minorities who have and continue to suffer greatly. Republicans and Conservatives are no less humane, but their image is not as soft. Dems believe that big government owes them, while we expect nothing except for what we can bring to the table. Both groups are not really that far apart, except when we look at Obama. Obama is not a democrat, he is a socialist whose policies have hurt the US at home and abroad.

Thank g-d for the Republican Jewish Coalition whose job is to enlighten American Jews. They are doing an excellent job!

Checkbook issues eventually come to the forefront. Not that many parents are willing to tolerate seeing their children unemployed and seeing a bleak financial future, for the sake of ideology. It's fine to talk about "caring" and "redistribution of wealth", right up to the point where it's THEIR wealth being redistributed.

* Yes, Republican Lindburg was a Nazi. In fact, here is the nose cone of the Spirit of St. Louis:

"American Jews have always perceived the Democratic Party as being more sensitive and understanding to human issues."

The more accurate word here is MISPERCEIVED, because the perception of the 'Rat party "as being more sensitive and understanding to human issues" is clearly historical revisionism. Taking private funds away coercively from the citizens and using it to redistribute wealth accordance to the fancies of government bureaucrats doesn't necessarily correlate with "being more sensitive and understanding to human issues." (Private American Jews themselves did much laudable work in this area long before government became dominant.) Neither is support for affirmative action and quotas. And what about the Democratic Party's connection to slavery, the KKK, and Jim Crow?

No, the Jewish Left's embrace of the Democratic Party is more a matter of irrational behavior and historical mythology rather than what really happened in the United States.

Hopefully, the author of this story is at least partially correct, and many Jewish voters will break their nasty addiction to the Democrats and will switch over to Mitt Romney, the only one of the two major candidates in this race who is pro-Israel and philo-Semitic.

Republican Lindburg was a Nazi. In fact, here is the nose cone of the Spirit of St. Louis.

Firstly, Lindbergh was not an American political figure as such, and never held elective office or politically-appointed office outside the military. He was probably a Republican, since his father was once a GOP Congressman and he married into the family of an ambassador appointed by a GOP president, but aside from a strange feud or two with Franklin D. Roosevelt, he was not a political character.

There is no historical evidence of Charles A. Lindbergh being a Nazi or a Nazi collaborator. Lindbergh did visit Nazi Germany before the onset of WWII and was allowed to visit some of its military aircraft facilities through "friendships" with Nazi military personnel. But he reported back his findings to the US government, and so his mission to Germany was actually as an American spy. Since Germany was ahead of the US in military aircraft technology at that point, Lindbergh could have provided very useful information.

I strongly doubt the authenticity of the photo you posted with a swastika purportedly painted on "The Spirit of St. Louis." "The Spirit of St. Louis" made its famous trans-Atlantic flight to Paris with Lindbergh piloting solo in 1927. I'd be sure it was retired in the United States before the Nazis came to power in Germany in 1933. It would never have been on German soil, certainly not during the Nazi era. So I can't see how, when, or where some Nazi(s) might have painted a swastika on it with Lindbergh's permission. To claim as you did that that is a true photo of the nose cone of "The Spirit of St. Louis" would require historical research to document the connections of those names on it to the history of the aircraft itself.

That's all pretty weak and old-news compared to the actions of the current moslem-in-chief and the historic RAT racism dating back to before the Civil War.

I didn't know about Lindburg, but I did know that the RAT-god Joe Kennedy was a Nazi sympathizer and Rockefeller, and Henry Ford, I believe.

Although some of this stuff is true, and self inflicted, most of the nazi slurs on Republicans has been the deliberate result of the RATagandists, who themselves are actually CPUSA "progressives".

Yes. The guess here is a 60-40 split.

But this considerable shift to the GOP, as compared to 2008, has to be keeping the Debbie Wasserman Schultzes of the world up at night fearing that it could perhaps be decisive for Romney in Florida, Ohio, or Nevada.

There are two types of Jews, the ones who care about Israel and the ones who don’t. Orthodox Jews vote Republican(If you’ve ever watched the Chabad telethon those are Orthodox Jews)..the Jews that have family in Israel or moved here from Israel(like my family did) also vote Republican. When my family came here in the late 60s they were automatically registered as Dems but my family overwhelmingly vote Republican(except a few of them but even they are seeing the light now). I recently saw a poll that shows that when it comes to Israel, its dead last as to what they care about(And these were the ones that voted Democrat)

Republicans and Conservatives are no less humane, but their image is not as soft.

Only because the GOP is full of spineles, useless linguini who allow the Dems to define them.

The history of the Republican Party is one that is replete with far more real support for minorities versus the lip service paid by the Dems to minorities.

As I stated before, I will NEVER understand how American Jews support the aims and goals of the Dem Party who hold Israel in contempt. I don't get it and I hope I never will.

With respect to your service in the IDF, I applaud and honor your service. It's a funny thing how war tends ro change your perspectives about life, isn't it?
