President Obama's Support Still Excellent With Jewish Voters
According to a report published in Talking Points Memo, Mr. Obama is doing just fine with Jewish voters. Despite the lies and disinformation found on rightwing blogs that falsely claim that the Jewish community is falling away from him, the truth is that Mr. Obama's support is solid and way ahead of anything the GOP candidates enjoy.
"It looks like a sweet start to the Jewish New Year for President Obama. According to a new poll by Democratic PPP, the recent panic over Obama’s standing with Jewish voters is little cause for concern in Florida, which has one of the largest Jewish populations in the nation.
Obama leads Rick Perry with Jewish voters 82-2 in a general election matchup and Romney 78-11, huge margins in line with Democrats’ traditional edge with one of their core demographics.
PPP notes that it’s a relatively small sample size, but all indications are still positive:
Obama’s approval rating among Jewish voters is 76/20 and 61/31 on his handling of Israel."
