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%.

  • http://www.wnd.com/2012/09/claim-obama-hid-gay-life-to-become-president/ It’s a bit disturbing to see this President accused of living a double life. If so, we can’t trust him.

    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 ! …

    How Jewish Television Pioneer Milton Berle Inspired Modern Comedy Stars

    JNS.org – Today’s comedy superstars, especially those whose careers are driven by television, may very well owe their success to pioneering Jewish entertainer Milton Berle. Born Mendel Berlinger in Manhattan in 1908, Berle became America’s first small-screen star. Aptly nicknamed “Mr. Television,” he influenced and helped promote the work of hundreds of younger comics. “Milton Berle was deceptively successful and very Jewish,” says Lawrence Epstein, author of The Haunted Smile: The Story of Jewish Comedians in America, published the year [...]
