Day 6: The Algemeiner’s Daily IBD/TIPP Jewish Vote Tracking Poll – Obama: 56.9% Romney 39.5%
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 2.6 points to reach 56.9%, and Romney’s Jewish support grew by 0.2% to 39.5%. The undecided figure dropped for the 5th day running, now reaching 3.5%, 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 have impacted 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%.
