Skip to comments.New Gallup: Obama slips with Jews
Posted on 09/15/2011 9:36:36 PM PDT by Clairity
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.
Obama's approval rating among Jewish Americans is also down to 55 percent - a five point drop from his approval rating in June, which stood at 60 percent.
Together, the rise in disapproval and dip in approval ratings are a net negative 11 point downturn for Obama among Jews.

At first glance I read this as Obozo sleeps with Jews. I must refrain from quick scanning.
His approval rating would probably drop even faster if he tried that.
He will still get 60%+ of the Jewish vote.
Still too many self-haters out there.
If Obama doesn’t win them back, his goons will later attack them.
I figure Obama will probably carry the Jewish vote in 2012 by the same or similar percentages as in 2008. Where he’ll get hurt politically is in the overall turnout numbers. I might be wrong (I often am, lol), but I think Obama is going to have a lot more folks inclined towards “sitting this one out” in 2012.
A great many Jews, like a great many Catholics and other Christians, are that “in name only.” Their true loyalties lie elsewhere,
Slipping with Jews, sleeping with Israel’s enemies...
“The real question is what are the 55% thinking who approve of him. “
Or the 43% of whites that voted for Obama in ‘98.
Ya been in this fercockta country for, what is it?, a coupla hundred years. Look around, ya meshuggas, it’s safe to get off the boat. Start acting like a mensch, already!
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
“He will still get 60%+ of the Jewish vote.”
Probably. Heck, I hope you're right, in that I hope he merely gets in the 60s. The Kenyan got 78% of the Jewish vote in 2008.
Losing 10+% of a key constituency isn't going to help him.
They are Dembots and the children of Dembots.
Assuming he will run - which is still an issue - the guess here is that his percentage of the Jewish vote next year will be much less: somewhere in the 50s.
BTW, his reported 78% of the Jewish vote in 2008, though widely accepted by political gurus, was probably overstated by perhaps as much as 10 points because it was the product of statistically flawed polling techniques.
Gallup's poll results in general have tended to overstate the strength of Democrat politicians and policies because of sampling technique errors as well.
You can ask your question of Catholics and other religious groups who have supported the Fuhrer also. Many on FR want to continuously slam Jews for supporting the disgrace occupying our WH. I remember Zero’s invitation to address Notre Dame despite his stance on abortion. There are many religious groups who need to do some soul searching with regard to the RAT party and then ask God for forgiveness.
As for the Jewish vote, Jews will also be closing their wallets with regard to the RAT Party whose leader is out to destroy Israel. Count on it. The GOP would be wise to make that issue quite clear.
Never Again is ringing very hollow thanks to the political hacks in DC and elsewhere, IMO.
Jewish votes don’t really matter, except maybe in Florida. Jewish opinion leaders’ abandonment of Obama (but probably not Democrats in general) does give a green light for open criticism of Obama, which could influence other voters.
As for Jews closing their wallets, you are right on the money!!! But......it will not only be Jews. Obama is unbalanced mentally, toxic and radioactive at the same time. And......many past money contributors are going to hold off coughing up any bucks. IMHO, Hillary Clinton is going to run against Obama in Democrat Primaries. She, if she runs, will get the majority of the bucks. Obama is done, Toasted, Wasted, Useless, Empty Suit, Un-American, Anti-American, Pro Muslim Brotherhood, Incompetent, Dirt bag, Total loser, etc.
Remember Obama’s boast of raising a billion dollars for the campaign?
———Not all of the stimulus money is accounted for. He has given millions to the unions who will simply donate in their member’s names.
Finally, we still don’t know where all of O’s contributions came in ‘08.
I don’t think money will a problem for Obama.
You are correct, Obama most likely will be hurting for money. But......think about his re-election in a pragmatic sense. Why would a labor leader or a business man, union or corporation give a potential mega loser significant money in campaign contributions. Case in point!!! Labor slacked off in both NY-9 & NV-2 CD. In fact not only did they not give money, much of their blue collar membership stayed home and sat on their hands. Ditto for religious Jews!!! Now......unless things turn around before November, 2012, Obama will win very few states. The handwriting is on the wall all over the country!!! And.....if you study the demographics and various voter groups, the only count-on solid group Obama has is American Blacks and a small core of liberal, left-wing, America hating liberal Democrats!!! I suspect a small group of American Blacks will get it and realize that Obama is actually their worst enemy. That said, the Black American support for Obama will drop into the high seventies or so, far from enough for Obama to be competitive against any GOP candidate. I sure one can shoot holes in my trend of thought, but I have been right on all along, certainly much better then any in the mainstream media, and......they get paid for not reporting the actual on-going series of political events!!! We shall see as time unfolds!!!
I can tell you that the Republican Jewish Coalition is talking about Jewish switching to the GOP possibly being decisive in a number of other battleground states - beside Florida - in next year's presidential race. I've seen Pennsylvania and Ohio among those in which we are interested.
Of course, Jewish votes matter in certain congressional races, like the one last week in NY-9, which (contrary to some media reports) is believed to have the fourth largest Jewish population of all congressional districts in the country. I've seen the Jewish population in NY-9 listed at about 22% of the total population, but since Jews tend to vote more than others, especially in this special election, it was estimated that at least 30% of the votes in NY-9 were cast by Jews.
Pennsylvania is cited as a battleground state.
285,000 Jews (2.3% of total population), of which typically half would be eligible to vote.
In 2008, Obama won by 605,820 votes.
In 2004, Kerry won by 144,000 votes.
In 2000, Gore won by 204,840 votes.
Use a realistic turnout and a realistic number of switched Jewish votes and tell me how likely it would be if those switched votes would swing the election.
Couldn’t have said it better myself. Your descriptive comments regarding the False Messiah were as accurate as can be.
I question whether it is as high as this poll states. It should be at ZERO percent among Jews and blacks also, for that matter, who have tremendously high unemployment.
Well..maybe with Barbara Streisand!
