The US Jews polled were asked whether they would: (a) vote to re-elect Obama, or (b) consider voting for someone else. 42% said they would vote for Obama and 46%, a plurality, preferred the second answer. 12% said they did not know or refused to answer.
In the Presidential elections of 2008, 78% of Jewish voters, or close to 8 out of 10, chose Obama. The McLaughlin poll held nearly 18 months later, in April 2010, appears to show that support is down to around 4 out of 10.From 80% support to 40% support in just a years time. Now wait until Iran gets the bomb on Obama's watch. I guess he will "condemn in the strongest possible terms Israel provoking Iran to act in self defense." I wonder if this is the start of Jewish flight away from the Democratic party? I mean Dems have shown over and over again how they dislike Israel and do everything that they can to embarrass their leaders. The Left has a long history of backing the Palestinians over our only democratic ally in the area.
