Posted on 04/14/2015 10:17:17 AM PDT by Olog-hai
While American Jews have supported US President Barack Obama significantly more than the general population in survey polls, that gap is narrowing, Gallup reported Fridayand disparagement is highest among the most religious.
Survey polls conducted over the past 6 years of Obamas presidency usually indicate a gap of at least 12-13 percentage points between American Jews approval and the general population, but that has since dwindled to barely 8 percentage points.
54% of American Jews and 46% of the general population approved of Obama's work during the first quarter of 2015, according to the most recent survey. The results are based on interviews with 44,101 Americans, 1,022 of whom identify as Jewish.
Obamas approval rating dwindles further as the observance level of American Jewry rises, the poll adds. 58% of Jews who almost never attend synagogue approved of Obama, versus just 38% who disapprove; Obamas approval ratings fall to just 53% and 34% among Jews who attend synagogue nearly weekly/monthly and attend weekly, respectively.

Gee, does this mean, empirical evidence has cracked invincible ignorance?
They maybe mad at him but a Rabbi said most Jews are Democrats before Jews
Does Israel have to be totally destroyed for the Jewish approval rating to go below 50%?
So many that identify as Jewish don’t give a flip about Israel. They’re only Jewish by bloodlines. They should feel shame.
” They should feel shame.”
Shame is so....so conservative.
About time that this phenomenon was reported in a poll. I’ve seen a lot of pro-Obama Jews suddenly quiet on matters of politics, and a lot of fence-sitters opposed to him. As for those of us who didn’t like the SOB in the first place, there are no words to describe our utter contempt and hatred for the “man.”
The poll result claiming that the more observant the Jew, the less likely he/she is to like Obama is completely accurate. You see, those of us who actually believe in G-d and not in some (false) political ideology are not beholden to the “gods” of a particular political ideology.
Name of rabbi, and affiliation?
Jews ARE stiff-necked people.
A Jew voting for Obama is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders.
Obama’s still into oppressing Christian influence,
so his approval will remain high with most of them.
All of humanity has been stiff-necked, starting with Adam.
No, that’s lefty propaganda.
Re-read the first post. Those that have abandoned their faith (leftists themselves) would have the more anti-Christian outlook. Just as in Jesus’ day, frankly; and such were strongly admonished by the Pharisee rabbi Gamaliel (Acts 5:35-39), who was one of the teachers of Paul the Apostle.
Liberal voters. Their “Jewishness” is not a matter of religion, i.e. per tradition. Liberal nominal Christians share such guilt.
You might enjoy this - especially if you have kids:
Given the numerous situations, it is surprising nobama has ANY positive rating with the Jews.
