JNS.org – American Jews feel more warmly about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu than U.S. President Barack Obama, a new poll says.

In the poll, commissioned by the left-wing J Street lobby, respondents were asked to quantify their feelings about the two leaders on a scale of 1-100, “with 100 meaning a very warm, favorable feeling; 0 meaning a very cold, unfavorable feeling.” Netanyahu’s rating was 56 and Obama scored 49. Former secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton got a 49 and Jeb Bush, the former Republican governor of Florida who is expected to launch a presidential bid, received a 28.

Jews feel closer to the Democratic Party—which received a rating of 49—than to the GOP, which got a 29, according to the poll.

    The gap between Jewish support for Democrats and Republicans is gradually narrowing but the process is painfully slow.

    Why shouldn’t they Obama is no friend of Israel. I saw this when PM Natanyahu took his jacket off when walking with Obama.
    Even though it was a hot day. Because Obama did it he thought he should do it. Obama has since then bad mouthed PM Natanyahu to dignitaries all over the world With Friends like Obama Israel does not need enemies, Natanyahu tells the truth to Arab leaders and Obama kissed their asses. Please tell your wealthy Jewish friends who gave millions to Obama to listen to what Hillary says about Israel. Talk is cheap and she talks plenty but no commitment to the best friend the US has in the middle-east. I do not trust her either. Has she said that Israel is the Homeland of the Jewish people? I need to hear her say that!! Obama has not!!

    Despite there being many obvious reasons to prefer Netanyahu to Obama, anything that emanates from J Street can not be trusted to be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
