Final Results: The Algemeiner’s Daily IBD/TIPP Jewish Vote Tracking Poll – Obama: 67.5% Romney 28.3%
President Obama dropped slightly again today in the final results of The Algemeiner IBD/TIPP Daily Jewish Vote Aggregate Average Tracking Poll, by 1.8% to 67.5%. Rival Mitt Romney’s numbers rose by 1.6% to reach 28.3%. The undecided figure is now 0.4%, as it appears that voters have for the most part now made their decisions as they head to the polls today.
For the President, these figures represent a drop of over 10 percent from the Jewish support he received in 2008, when he secured 78% of the vote. For the Republicans who received 22% of the vote that year, the growth in Jewish support is 6.8%.
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 of polling, which were not contiguous as a result of Hurricane Sandy, 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 Michael Dukakis who received 64% of the Jewish vote running against George H.W. Bush in 1988, and the greatest amount of Jewish support for a Republican candidate since that same year when Bush attracted 35%.
