Skip to comments.Poll Shows Romney Leading Obama among Jews
Posted on 10/11/2012 3:20:02 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
A tracking poll published Thursday by TIPP for Investors' Business Daily shows the hard-to-believe statistic of 44% support for Mitt Romney among likely Jewish voters, versus 40% for Obama, with 16% undecided.
The statistic is qualified with the comment that it is based on a small sample and should therefore be viewed with caution.
The poll was conducted among 812 likely voters, with an 8% advantage for registered Democrats over Republicans.
If the numbers are in any way close to representing reality, they reflect an unprecedented shift in Jewish voting preferences. Jews have voted overwhelmingly for Democratic presidential candidates for decades. Obama enjoyed 78% of the Jewish vote in the 2008 election.
Jewish support for Obama has been slipping recently. In September, the TIPP poll gave him 59% versus 35% for Romney. That in itself was seen as quite an accomplishment for Romney. It was not far from the 40 percent number in support of Dwight Eisenhower recorded by Jews in 1956, which was the highest backing by Jews for a Republican in nearly a century.

Helps in Florida!
I hope so.
Obama has gone out of his way to insult Jews.
I am still confused on how they know they are calling Jewish people. Do we have a little star next to our name in the phone book that I never noticed?
So, I take this with a grain of salt as to raw percentages, but do agree that this is the trend.
Combine this with the black ministers who are telling their flocks to break free of the democratic party plantation and November 6th could be a sweep of titanic proportions. I’m not counting my chickens but it seems on every front, that the air is coming out of the balloon. And with only three weeks to go.
If true, it puts PA and even NJ in play.
When have you seen that disclaimer on an poll before?
812 voters is a typical poll size !
No friggin’ way.
I’m as optimistic a guy as there is (I predict 55 / 45).
And, I’ve been hanging with the J crowd for over 30 years.
There’s no way the majority of them would turn against their religion: Liberalism.
Obama: “Oy vey!”.
I think most polling now incorporates asking about race and religious affiliation, as well as factors that have nothing to do with party registration.
But I doubt that Jews are moving towards Romney in great numbers, though I suspect he will get much better numbers than McCain did.
Can’t believe it... whats next, a poll showing 33% support by Blacks for Romney?
can you believe this
Democrats are only over sampled by 8%. That isn’t reflective of the Jewish population unfortunately. I do think that an historic number of Jews will vote Romney though.
Good question (and funny too). I try to use a different accent every time I get a "survey" question on the phone to throw them off.
Gee I wonder what made the Jews FINALLY start to wake up..was it the Dems booing Israel or Obama telling Netanyahu to shove it..even though most Jews will always vote because they are liberal its so nice to see so many of them finally waking up
WOW! What are the chances of this article coming to light and what the Lord showed me a few minutes ago?! I was just in my prayer closet and wanted to share a few words of encouragement for those who are fearful...This is what the Lord spoke to my heart,....FEAR NOT FOR I’M WITH YOU, like in the battle of Gideon so shall I be with you. I will fight this battle for you. I have heard the cries of my people. He then in a small still voice told me that Romney was going win! Take it for what it’s worth, I’m taking all the way to the bank cause I serve an AWESOME GOD!
Would this be FL Jews? Or where?
I have my doubts. There is no way Dems have only a +8 advantage among Jews.
