Skip to comments.GOP sees signs of Jewish voters drifting away from Democrats

Republicans believe that the deepening crisis in Gaza could ultimately loosen the grip that the Democratic Party has traditionally held upon American Jewish voters.
While declarations of a rift between Democrats and the Jewish community have proven premature in the past, things could be different this time, they assert.
Just in the last week, the Obama administration used unusually strong language to condemn the shelling of a United Nations-run school in Gaza, apparently by the Israeli military, and drafted a document for a cease-fire that Israeli officials denounced as favoring Hamas.
Conservatives say the overall stance of the administration has created an atmosphere of skepticism in the Democratic base toward Israel.
They point to a succession of recent polls to make their case. A Gallup survey last month found that only 31 percent of Democrats believed Israels actions against Hamas were justified, whereas 65 percent of Republicans held that view.
A Pew poll during the same period asked people which side was most to blame for the violence. Democrats split almost evenly on that question, with 29 percent blaming Hamas and 26 percent blaming Israel. By contrast, more than four times as many Republicans held Hamas culpable (60 percent) as pinned the blame on Israel (13 percent.)

Yeah, sure they do... they also think that providing amnesty to the millions of uneducated, unskilled, illegals will result in more votes for them. In short, they are morons.
Most American Jews would vote D if Obama nuked Israel. They are Marxists first and Jews second.
Pray America wakes up
Obama just sent Israel a pittance....while sending the Palestinians the mother load.
American Jews will vote dem regardless of Israels interests.
Makes NO sense.
And they view the GOP as a bastion of conservative Christians, whom they particularly despise.
American Jews, by in large, hate Israel as much as Obama does. There’s a sizable exception of course, but America is the hub of the modern liberal Jew.
Yes, but when they see muslims in the street in DC and Europe screaming “death to the Jews,” they might rethink the matter.
Yeah, right. Not...
Sorry, anyone from Westport or Boca knows this is crap. Leftists are leftists no matter how badly they are betrayed. Good luck recruiting Barbara Streisand, y’all...
Libertarian Jewish voters are that true target for recruiting into the conservative fold. I would not suggest they join the. GOP outside of where its necessary so they can support a particular ticket. As conservatives, they already have one foot in our camp. We just need to reinforce the message of minimal, stay out of your face government.
Drifting away? the way they’ve been treated by the Democrats, they should be stampeding away!
It will be a short lived “drift” as soon as Lizzie Warren is found to be 1/128 part Jewish....
Jews would vote for Hitler if he was a Democrat!
“Yes, but when they see muslims in the street in DC and Europe screaming death to the Jews, they might rethink the matter.”
For whatever reason, American Jews will return home to Israel - (Isaiah 60)
As well they should. Odumbo and the Rats have been screwing the Jews for the last six years, although many American Jews are too stubborn or stupid to realize it.
Hope my doctor is not one of them.
The Jews outside of Israel have this zeal to commit political suicide. Let’s look at what happened in Germany in the 30’s shall we. Hitler got into power with 1/3 of the electorate voting for him, and, sad to say, many Jews voted for Hitler. Even after people were begging them not to vote for this monster. They did any way. Sad to say, but it appears that the American Jews will buy the rope that they are hung with.
The reason so many American Jews support the Democrats is because the Democrat policies ensure that there will ALWAYS be a plentiful, begging, lower-class American worker who will take whatever pittance that is offered just to be ALLOWED to work for a living! PERIOD!
