Support for President Barack Obama from Jews Slipping Fast … What’s in Store for 2012 Election?


As if we needed a poll to figure out that President Barack Obama’s support among Jews was tanking following the disastrous Democrat loss of Congressional NY-9 this week. Now a Gallup poll shows that Obama’s support among Jews is slipping badly. Four in ten Jews now disapprove of Obama. What does this polling trend have in store for the 2012 elections and states/districts that have a large Jewish population?

President Barack Obama’s support among Jews has dropped, new data shows.

Four out of 10 Jewish Americans currently disapprove of Obama, according to polling data provided to POLITICO by Gallup, which has yet to post the numbers on its website.

This 40 percent disapproval rating is 8 percent higher than the 32 percent disapproval rating among Jewish Americans that was last reported by Gallup in June.

While Obama still remains popular with Jews, the data, from a poll conducted Aug. 1-Sept.14, is the latest concrete indication that the president is facing worsening problems among a key group.

But Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the other Democrat mouth pieces will tell you that Weprin’s loss in NY-9 was an anomaly. It was just a difficult district for Democrats to win, even though they had not done so since the 1920′s.

EXIT QUESTION: Obama now finds himself in trouble with Jews, what demographic isn’t Obama having trouble with? Barack Obama won 77% of the Jewish vote in 2008, now down 13% since May 2011. What will this support look like in 2012?

  • Obama polling trouble with Whites, Blacks and Hispanics
  • Obama polling trouble with those he carried in 2008 election.
    • Start with voters who call themselves independents. Obama won 52 percent of them in 2008; now, according to Gallup, he is at 42 percent.Obama’s party as a whole fared even worse among independents in the midterms, losing them to Republicans by 19 points.
    • Next, women. In 2008, Obama won 56 percent of female voters. Today, he’s at 49 percent.
    • Even younger voters, a key part of Obama’s coalition, are peeling away. In ’08, Obama won 66 percent of voters 18-29 years of age. Now, he’s at 58 percent.
    • Obama has dropped 5 percentage points among voters in and around middle age, and 8 percent with voters above 65.

      Incredible amounts of damage done during the current
      reign of this fellow. Debt level at catastrophic levels,
      selective distribution of our wealth by the Executive
      Branch (what about distribution of powers?), and
      strangling regulations imposed on our productive
      citizenry. Recovery from the devastation of this regime
      is going to be a gut-wrenching project over time.

      So, now, at last those folks that elected this monstrous
      juggernaut of a wrecking crew are slowly awakening….

      I wondered if the Jews had all forgotten the message from the Holocaust. No, that does not mean I am comparing Obama to Hitler, but what I am saying is that the Jews sometimes forget who their true friends are.
