A Gallup poll released on Friday shows 64% of registered Jewish voters currently support President Obama’s re-election, while 29% support Mitt Romney.

“Among Jews, Obama’s current 64% to 29% advantage compares with a 74% to 23% advantage before the election in 2008,” Gallup writes in its new poll, entitled ‘Mormons Widely Favor Romney, Jewish Voters Back Obama’. “Thus, he is running 10 points lower among Jewish registered voters than in 2008, which is five points worse than his decline among all registered voters compared with 2008.”

The Republican Jewish Coalition notes the 29% of Jewish voters who support Romney, represents the “highest level of Jewish support for a Republican presidential candidate in 24 years.”

“This poll is another sign of the erosion of support for Obama among Jewish voters. If the President wins just 64% of the Jewish vote, it would be a disaster for him and his party. Jewish voters are increasingly disillusioned with the President and that’s why Mitt Romney is making real inroads in the Jewish community this year.” RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks said in a statement to reporters.

According to Gallup, then Senator Barack Obama held 62% of the Jewish vote in June of 2008,  before the final number rose to 78% in November.  The same poll notes that John McCain, who was running as the republican nominee for President in 2008, held 31% of the Jewish vote in June of that year.  He finished with 22%.

    Dare we hope that many American Jews, those who hadn’t yet figured out that the liberals continue to use them as they have for decades, are finally awakening to realize that establishment liberals continue to pander to and use them while (not so) secretly laughing at their gullability and working assiduously to doom Israel to extinction? Wow, I hope so!

  • The state of Israel is a friend of the world? *James 4:4 Ye adulterers, and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. *1st John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things (1st Corinthians 3:21 & Genesis 9:3) that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. (Isaiah 38:19)

  • Does the state of Israel love Joseph? Reading Genesis 37:3 and Genesis 50:15 (peradventure) for Abraham (Genesis 18:32). Earthquake means all the earthly churches are evenly rented out! Synagogues / temples are of Satan (Revelation 2:9 and Jeremiah 7:4). The truth is out, her / daughter is the church, she is David’s wife Michal, an image (1st Samuel 19:13). *1st Samuel 18:21 And Saul said, I will give him her, that she may be a snare to him, and that the hand of the Philistines may be against him. Wherefore Saul said to David, Thou shalt this day be my son in law in one of the twain. (Lamentations 1:19). *Matthew 27:51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from top to bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;

    We all must understand that Qbama hate israel and the Jews. Obama is not a friend of Israel. He is the enemy of Israel.
    Please,don’t vote for Obama if you love Israel. Please wake up in a hurry.

  • JEWS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE ABOVE AVERAGE IN INTELLIGENCE. THEY ARE BRILLANT IN ALL AREAS EXCEPT IN POLITICS. THEY ARE STILL GULLIBLE AND BELIEVE WHAT POLITICIANS TELL THEM WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR. HOW CAN ANY JEW WITH “SAYCHEL” BELIEVE THAT OBAMA IS IN ISRAEL’S CORNER? HE WANTS THE JEWISH VOTE AND HE WILL SAY ANYTHING TO GET IT. LOOK AT HIS TRACK RECORD, HOW HE TREATED ISRAEL THESE PAST THREE YEARS. CAN’T OUR PEOPLE SEE HOW FALSE HE IS AND HOW EMPTY HIS WORDS ARE? HAVEN’T WE LEARNED ANYTHING FROM THIS FAKER’S BEHAVIOR?

  • The entire world is spiritually dead, salvation is grace and truth, what is preadventure? (Genesis 18:32). *1st Samuel 6:5 Wherefore ye shall make images of your emerods, and images of your mice that mar the land; and ye shall give glory unto the God of Israel: peradventure he will lighten his hand from off you, and from off your gods, and from off your land. *2nd Timothy 2:25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to acknowleding of the truth. *(John 1:17)

  • American Jews need to wake up in a hurry…Obama is not their friend and he’s a lousy president. I doubt he has any integrity at all and he was probably bankrolled by Arabs.

    I think American Jews must be suicidal to vote for this guy!

  • God resists the proud, and gives grace to the humble? God does not lie. *John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. *Jeremiah 5:12 They have belied the Lord, and said, It is not he; neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see a sword nor famine: (Amos 8:11)

    So, the slavish Jewish devotion to The One has diminished somewhat. Big Deal. Why any Jew in his or her right mind would vote for this narcissisistic, amateurish enemy of Israel and the Jews is beyond me. I am proud of my Jewish heritage, but I am less than proud of those who share it.

    • So : only 10% of those 78% American Jews are beginning to see the light!
      No doubt, one thing that I believe would likely occur, should this dire prediction come true – and chances are it may happen – is that Jews and Israel too will fatally lose quite a good number of non-Jew pro-active, strong supporters :the writing is on the wall since before last election, and all along these years. There’s a limit to bear with jewish leftists’ foolishness, self-deception and gullibility. Patience is running out : Errare humanum est, perseverare diabolicum ! …

    The Origins of Palestinian Refugee Relief Efforts (REVIEW)

    Romirowsky and Joffe’s book Religion, Politics and the Origins of Palestine Refugee Relief is an important volume for those interested in truly understanding the origins of the Palestinian refugee issue.

For those readers who thought they knew most of the Middle East story, Romirowsky and Joffe’s version provides another twist. The authors meticulously [...]

    Israeli Soccer Team Faces Prospect of International Ban

    The Israel National soccer team could be facing a World Cup ban, and other soccer sanctions, unless it alleviates travel restrictions and increases field access for Palestinian players and coaches. The head of the Palestinian Football Association is pushing for international soccer’s governing body, the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA), to issue a ban on Israel competing internationally, claiming Israel’s restrictive travel for Palestinians is equivalent to a form of oppression. “It’s not only the athletes,” Jibril Rajoub explains.

    JNS.org – While the national debate on “Obamacare” rages on past the recent March 31 sign-up deadline, bestselling Jewish author Dr. Joel Fuhrman says the “current disease care model of what we call ‘health care’ cannot possibly be sustained.” “There is simply not enough money available to support a system in which the lion’s share of expenditures is devoted to acute care, with virtually nothing being spent on preventive medicine, i.e. health care,” Fuhrman says in an interview. “To make [...]

The collection represents the first-ever art exhibit of its kind: an exhibit created entirely by Israelis in treatment for eating disorders. Dubbed “Tears of Color,” based on one of the [...]

    Overprotective or Loving? Daughters Reflect on Jewish Mothers in New Anthology

    JNS.org – Rachel Ament noticed that she and her friends often shared humorous anecdotes that were typically variations on a theme: overprotective, worrying Jewish moms who smothered them with love. That included Ament’s own mother. “My mom is probably every Jewish stereotype scrunched into one,” the Washington, DC, resident tells JNS.org. “At the root of all these stereotypical, worrying, overprotective moms, is love.” A social media writer for Capital One, as well as a freelance writer, Ament decided about three years [...]

    ‎Kosher Lust: Love is Not the Answer (REVIEW)

    Kosher Lust, by Shmuley Boteach (Gefen Publishing House, 2014). You really do want to find something positive to say about Shmuley Boteach. He is a phenomenon; very bright, an articulate bundle of energy and self-promotion. Anyone who has the chutzpah to describe himself as “America’s Rabbi” deserves ten out of ten for effort. I believe that along with most Chabad alumni, official and unofficial, he does a lot of good and is a sort of national treasure. In this world [...]

    JNS.org – In a throwback to the golden age of cinema, Hollywood has declared 2014 the “Year of the Bible.” From Ridley Scott’s Exodus starring Christian Bale as Moses, to Russell Crowe playing Noah, Hollywood is gambling on new innovations in technology and star power to revisit some of the most popular stories ever told. “It’s definitely a throwback to the 1950s and early ’60s,” Dr. Stephen J.

Arbus met Carmel, who was billed “The World’s Tallest Man,” at Hubert’s Dime Museum and Flea Circus in 1959 but waited until 1970 to photograph him at his parents’ home in the Bronx, according to the museum. The son of immigrants from Tel Aviv, Carmel posed for Arbus with his head bowed to [...]
