Poll: Obama Has Lost Almost Half of U.S. Jewish Support


obama-jewishIt looks like a core group that supported President Barack Obama during his election is dropping their support for him by half. Arutz Sheva is reporting that President Barack Obama has lost almost half of his support among Jewish Americans. A poll done by the McLaughlin Group asked American Jews if 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.

The data on the 2008 presidential elections fares no better today for Mr. Obama either:

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 down to around 4 out of 10.

The poll showed that key voter segments including Orthodox/Chassidishe voters, Conservative voters, voters who have friends and family in Israel and those who have been to Israel, are all more likely to consider voting for someone other than Obama.¬†Among Orthodox/Chassidishe voters, 69% marked ‘someone else’ vs. 17% who marked ‘re-elect.’ Among Conservative-affiliated voters the proportion was 50% to 38%. Among Reform Jews, a slim majority of 52% still supported Obama while 36% indicated they would consider someone else. Among Jews with family in Israel and those who had been to Israel, about 50% said they would consider someone else, while 41%-42% supported Obama.

Fifty percent of the Jewish voters polled said they approved of the job Obama is doing handling US relations with Israel. Thirty-nine percent said they disapproved. “This rating is not good for a group of voters who are 59% Democratic to only 16% Republican,” the poll’s analysis noted.

  1. What? More than half of Jews out there are so foolish or are they all self-hating Jews who’d even prefer Iran’s Ashmedai, President of the Demons, as long as he’s against Israel?

  2. Results of Polls got to be taken with a grain of salt. But fact remains, that there seems to be a growing trend, against Obama and his trying to be poisach al shnei haseifim, by on the one hand claiming to be israels best friend and totally supportive of her security, while at the same time he’s following the egyptian agenda of removing israel of her nukes, and pressuring israel into dangerous peace concessions with a partner thats not the ruling party in the palestinian territories (where hamas is really the ones in control) and with all this ignoring the palestinians violations, well its just clearly not working to his benefit.
