Obama Polling Worse Among Jews Than Any Dem in 32 Years


You have to go all the way back to Jimmy Carter in 1980 to find a Democratic candidate who’s polling worse among Jews than Obama is. And that’s no coincidence. Carter scored big numbers against Ford in 1976 only to lose a major chunk of Jewish supporters after four years of pro-Terrorist policies that undermined Israel and security and stability in the Middle East.

Obama reportedly scored 76 percent of the Jewish  vote in 2008. Carter picked up 71 percent in 1976. By 1980, Carter was down to 45 percent. The latest polls show Obama down to 59 percent among Jews.

No Democrat has ever won the White House with that low a share of the vote. The Democratic candidates who scored that low, Carter in 1980, Dukakis, Mondale, McGovern, Adlai Stevenson, were all losers who went on to lose the election. To find a Democratic presidential candidate who won less than 60 percent of the Jewish vote and still won the White House, you have to go back 96 years to the election of 1916 where Woodrow Wilson had 55 percent of the Jewish vote against 45 percent for Republican Chris Evans Hughes. And that was considered a very close election.

The Jewish vote does not determine elections, but it is a sign of the loss of support. Romney is taking a Reagan sized bite of the Catholic vote and is within 4 percent of matching Reagan’s numbers among Jews.

      Never underestimate tne Democraps,with tem or Dem,even the deads are voting.They just got 4more names to add to their list.By the way how come Obama is still running for the Presidency?What will it take for the patological liar to resign?What will it take for the Democraps to shove of him aside?

    This is damaging my stereotype of Jews. How smart can they be if 59% are still willing to vote for Obama?;-)

    • IsraelFirster

      Those stats are skewed by the Jews living in New York, Massachusetts and California. There must be something in the air that causes them to vote Democrat no matter how many times the current candidate kicks us in the nuts.

      • gerry

        Hey,in Ma they voted for years for the murderer,"the conscience of the Senate".Explain this one to me!

        I am Jewish and a Republican for life but my parents and grandparents were so impacted by FDR who they saw as saving them from NAZIs plus the government jobs so many Jews got as new immigrants in the early to mid 20th Century and government workers are Demkocrats …. must be the reasons. Obama is worthless, a mistake for anyone to vote for but he is especially dangerous for Isrark anf although the USAA is muy country, I do worry ahout somer coudsines in Israel.

        Actually New York Jews are shifting the other way.

  • giannanyc

    As a Ny'er I can say they are inbred to vote Democrat no matter what. It is a city of brain washed masses. Thank God my parents taught me to think for myself!

    • gerry

      Why?There is something to wash!

    • jemaasjr

      I am not a big Israel supporter, actually. But watching the way the left is going and all the pro Arab hints thrown out by that spooky-creepy Obama, and his Islam empowering foreign policy;I do not know how any diehard Israel supporter could vote Democrat this time around. Hell, Romney is such a damn RINO he might just as well be a Democrat.

    The Jewish population in FL are changing their minds about Obama there is a sign in Palm Beach that says "Obama Oy Vey. "

  • cynthia curran

    Jews are only 2 percent of the population but they tend to vote more so than Hispanics which is good news if Obama is really down to 59 percent of the Jewish vote since he as about 95 percent of the black vote, about 60 percent of the Hispanic and Asian votes. Jews tend to support more of a welfare state and so forth. There are times mention above where Israel counts that some of them changed.

  • cynthia curran

    Obama seems to do best with the least educated and the lowest income. Granted, he does better with college degree or higher but between with high school or less. Obama over 30,000 and 30,000 to 50,000 which is really the working class. Romney 51,000 to 76,000 middle to upper middle class in poorer states. 75,000 a virtual tie lawyers and Buffett types. Class should be more based upon income since Romney probably does better with the self-employed that make near the 75,000 mark and often have some college but don't finished school. Obama typical Dem lower class people and minorities are his biggest group-nothing new here.

    This is not a credible pollster. Barack Obama is well ahead with Jewish voters according to the latest Gallup poll which shows Obama ahead of Romney with Jews – 70% to 25%. And contrary to what Cynthia Curran said, Obama does best with those who are most educated. It is Republicans who usually win the least educated category. There's a reason Rick Santorum and other Republicans don't want people to go to college.

    • גבר עצוב

      So sad. Polls, shmoles. Some highly educated people, including Jews, strongly oppose Obama due to the danger he poses to us all. Rebecca, you are a young woman. I hope that you will gain wisdom as you grow older. May Hashem have mercy on your husband (if you have one, and even if he is actually a he.)

      It's pretty sad that Jewish people do not recognize their enemy as easily as others do. I do believe they've been warned – over and over.

  • Paul Forsberg

    Thank goodness the Jews are changing their minds ….. we still have a little time left for more of them to come-around.
    As for the others who will NEVER vote Republican, HOPEFULLY, they will stay home and not vote.

    We need to get this moron out of the Whitehouse – let him take his Nobel prize and go hang around with Jimmy Carter.

  • maladroit

    I have a few Jewish friends in liberal MA, they are voting "Romney all the way" <– their words. Other than that, I know several diehard Republican Jews here in FL who volunteer at our local GOP offices.

  • Avichai

    The Jewish demographic has shifted also ,now more and more Jews identify as conservative Jews in religion and politics .The liberal democratic Jews are dying off quick because they love to assimilate tHemselves into oblivion .The future is ours they and Obama will be history soon.

  • Dixie Lane

    It's just hard to believe any demographic in this country, including blacks and hispanics, would vote for Obama. If he were white, he would be 20 points behind in the polls.

  • Lewis German

    How can a person of the Jewish faith vote for a individual that is so against Israel?
