President Obama and Mitt Romney at the Oct 16th debate.

Both President Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney inched up in today’s Algemeiner IBD/TIPP Daily Jewish Vote Aggregate Average Tracking Poll, Obama added 1.8 points to reach 54.3%, and Romney’s Jewish support grew by 0.8% to 39.3%. The undecided figure dropped for the 4th day running, now reaching 6.3%, as  it appears voter choice continues to solidify as election day nears.

The effects of Obama’s latest debate performance, which was widely considered to be a substantial improvement on his previous debate, may be beginning to show in the latest figures.

Today’s Algemeiner poll is an average of aggregated Jewish vote figures provided in the daily IBD/TIPP tracking poll over the last 10 days, and is gleaned from an approximate total sampling of 200-240 Jewish respondents. Assuming a U.S. Jewish population of 6,588,065 the confidence level of this poll is 95% with a margin of error of between 6.3% and 6.9% depending on the precise sample size.

These numbers mark the lowest level of support for a Democratic candidate since Jimmy Carter who received only 45% of the Jewish vote running against Ronald Reagan in 1980, and the greatest amount of Jewish support for a Republican candidate since 1956 when Eisenhower attracted 40%.

In 2008 the IBD/TIPP Poll was crowned the most accurate.

    I’m from Montreal and I’m not Jewish. I’ve been following Obama’s policies and interaction with Israel for the past two years.

    I simply cannot comprehend that any American Jew can prefer Obama to Romney, may it be on the economics issue or the foreign policy issue.

    It is very evident that most Jews are simply ignorant of what has been happening since Obama came to power.

    I have a Jewish friend who just loves Obama. When I tell him certain facts about Obama’s actions and policies, small bits at a time, he’s floored and I must prove what I say. I guess it is the case for most American Jews… but now it’s too late. They will reap what they sowed.
