The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) has put up a series of billboard advertisements reading “Obama…Oy Vey!!” in South Florida Jewish communities in an effort to sway voters in that critical swing state.
Placed in Florida’s Broward and Palm Beach counties, the billboards also ask “Had enough?” and feature the RJC’s MyBuyersRemorse.com website, which includes videos of Jewish voters who chose Barack Obama in 2008 and talk about how they regret their decision.
“There is a strong sense of buyer’s remorse among Jewish voters, who are disappointed and disillusioned with President Obama and the job he has done in the last 3 ½ years,” RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks said in a statement Tuesday. “We’re helping those people give voice to their feelings.”
A new Investors Business Daily/Christian Science Monitor/TIPP poll shows Obama’s Jewish support at 59 percent, compared with 35 percent for Republican candidate Mitt Romney. By comparison, Gallup polls in June and July had 68 percent of Jewish voters choosing Obama.
