Obama’s Jewish Support Continues to Erode – Down 13 Points Since May

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lectures Barack Obama in the Oval Office on the dangers facing Israel back in May.

Barack Obama won 77% of the Jewish vote in the 2008 election. In the latest poll four out of ten Jewish Americans currently disapprove of the far left president.
Yid With Lid reported:

Obama’s approval rating among Jewish Americans is down to 55 percent – a five point drop from June and a 13 point drop from May which is when he made the demand that Israel use the 1949 Armistice lines as the starting point for negotiations instead of as the goal of negotiations.

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.

Together, the rise in disapproval and dip in approval ratings are a net negative 11 point downturn for Obama among Jews.

    55% is still very high
    How can so many be so supportive of jihad ?

  • rbosque

    What the h*ll did that idiot expect? Obama has been trying to gift-wrap Israel to Muslims since he got elected by morons.

  • Conservative Ken

    He can make up that loss. Awful President, top notch campaigner. We dare not let up one bit on Obama. Like the Patriots, we can win every game and lose the Super Bowl.

  • Hobbitually conservative

    Is this the type of Jewish terrorism the Islamist’s keep talking about? No wonder obama scared.

  • Terry in GA

    This post would be great with a follow-up picture, in addition to the one you posted, of Netanyahu speaking to the joint houses of congress to a rousing standing ovation. Those two pictures are engraved in my heart, you know the kind that cause your heart to flutter a bit at the simple memory of the occasion.

  • Buffalobob

    How can so many Jews be so distrustful of the Cristian right that they would support a jihadist supporter?

  • kate

    Frankly, I don’t understand why any Jew would support Obama. Look at the facts. Obama is like the rest of the far left; they hate Jews.

    Frankly, I get tired of this question. I don’t understand why Catholics still support him. He heartily supports Planned Parenthood, hates Christianity (remember how he had the cross covered up at Georgetown before he spoke) and was one of the few consistent supporters in the Senate of partial birth abortion, which is, in reality, infanticide.

    the 55 per cent are liberals first, second and third,

    I post a link here to the ” 10 stages of grief ” . The jewish socialist voter has finally reached the 10th stage ” Connect with others who hurt.” During the Obamacare debate they were still in the early stages of grief..shock and denial…anger and hostility. Jews would accuse me of being antisemitic for trying to inform about Obama’s muslimness and stealth antisemitism. They would complain to web moderators and try to have my voice censored. I even got kick off of some sites. Then Obama announced his 67 borders plan and the jewish guilt of remouse grew to be unbearable. The truth has settled in to the point where the grieving process is complete…. Obama will never recover because jews will never forget… http://www.mycog.com/tenstagesofgrief.htm

    “Jews will never forget.”

    That’s good, because I’m a Christian, and I’ll never forget.

    People better wake up. The Progressives are trying to destroy our country. They have all ready destroyed the Democratic Party. Now, they are putting the finishing touches on the death spiral they have created for our economy, in hopes that we never get out of the hole they have dug for us. They must be defeated in 2012.

  • gus

    Opie the Kenyan Dimwit is TOAST. The INDEPENDENTS are gone. The intelligent Jews are gone, the Mid-stream Democrats are gone.

    Obama is toast. It will be ugly and very very very dirty BUT….Obama is TOAST.

  • gus

    PROGRESSIVES?????? These people are COMMUNISTS. Either they are HELL BENT on being COMMIE, or they are FELLOW TRAVELERS and are naive fools.


  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    This means that the other six out of ten are still asleep or in a trance.

  • Robert

    Still down, but Obama has been climbing slightly
    over the last few days at the Rasmussen poll.

  • Ipso Facto

    I hope the Jewish people wake-up to the fact that the Christians (including the staunch evangelicals who drive me nuts) are not their adversaries. I would like to encourage the Jewish people to consider that it is the progressives, like Obama, Clinton, etc, who have engineered such absurd middle eastern policies and denigrated Israel to high heaven, who are their staunch adversaries.

    Of course the progressive charlatans will put on a happy face to the Jewish voting constituency, and they will send out the kapo DWS, however, behind closed doors the progressives are planning how to stick it to the Jewish people big time.

    The world is a different place today. We all need to look around and realize that things have changed a great deal. America today is under attack from the socialist progressives who envy and resent people of accomplishment – and the Jewish people are high on that list. They can either keep voting for the Democrats because they have sympathy for underclass and the persecuted – in which case they will exacerbate their own persecution – or they can look around and see who are the people that want EVERYONE to realize their fullest human potential.

    Consider me a skeptic, but are the Jews worth it anymore?

    As one of quite probably Jewish ancestry (finding one’s ancestors buried in nothing but Jewish cemetaries in central Europe from 150 years ago), my tolerance for American Jews is exhausted. Having studied the German phenomenon that gave rise to the fascist state, working through sociological, phenomenological and philosophical worlds, I realized that our dear Jews were giving excessive warning but rather than react and respond, ignored and embraced the fascist.

    They’re doing it again now, eagerly believing that by loving the second-generation Progressive fascist Obama, they will once again be protected from harm (as the first generation believed with Hitler).

    These are people that do not deserve our protection nor care. I lost family ancestors remarkably close to me in a war that the Jews felt would never happen. If it wasn’t meaningful for the Jews to oppose, why should my family have suffered such harms in responding to the Nazis?

    This time, if the Jews do not wish to recognize the evil that is destined to eradicate them, I say we must step back and allow the end of a great people to be realized. Moses tried but they could not cease their worship of false idols. At the Alter of the Progressive God Obama, they partook in their final false communion, embracing the inverse deity that would deliver the end days of their kind and place them into history.

  • Craig

    I will never be able to figure out why they voted for a Muslims in 2008. It’s mind bogging!

  • Governing is so much harder than campaigning. Obama can’t vote present anymore. He must take a stand, and with each stand, his naked anti-Americanism and anti-Israelism becomes visible to all. Are voters offended? You betcha!

    re: #20 Multitude
    “Consider me a skeptic, but are the Jews worth it anymore?”

    I don’t see it as a case of “us” (whoever “us” is) saving the Jews. When you say this I hope all I am hearing is frustration on your part. Yes, the Jewish people have made a few errors, however, who hasn’t? My perception is that up until the middle of the 1900’s the WASPs owned America, lock, stock and barrel. They then made the mistake, starting around the 1950’s, where they started to spoil their kids with their wealth. This was unfortunate for them, they had their reign, but they squandered it. The next group of people ready to fill in right behind the WASPs to take the leadership positions all over America were the Jewish people. They worked hard, applied themselves, sent their kids to all the good schools, but instead of taking the baton from the WASPs, the Jews next spoiled their kids and they too turned out a generation of kids who behaved like products of privilege and they effectively dropped the baton.

    The next group on deck to inherit the reign of America is the Asians. They are all action and no talk and they are not spoiling their kids at all. I feel great about them bringing America back from the abyss.

    When I see the Jewish people today I feel like they are falling into roles they traditionally had in the past, with partners they traditionally had in the past. I feel like the Jewish people have developed the penultimate mode of behavior for starting in America with squat and ending up with a whole lot. I wish other minorities would adopt their behaviors and values, but that’s an entirely other matter.

    When I see the Jewish people voting for the Democrats en masse, I feel like hey, it’s their business and who am I to say anything. Then again, at times I feel like if they do that, they should stop preaching about the Holocaust and they should start to dismantle all the Holocaust memorials because by voting for the Democrats, they are making a mockery of the idea that we should all remember history and how bad things can get if we become passive. Do they not see the utter (and sad) irony in this?

    I hope the Jewish people wake up, however, it has to come from within.

  • American Patriot

    Obama could rip the heads off puppies on live TV and there will still be a large segment of the population who will support him. Blacks, liberals, and self-hating jews are exactly the people who believe Obama is their flesh and blood prophet who will lead them to the promised land of wealth and prosperity, so they will adoringly follow him into whatever abyss he leads them. These are the same folks who would have to be pulled from their burning homes because they are too stupid to think for themselves, and act decisively when confronted with danger. It’s just easier for someone else makes those difficult decisions.

    Most on the left are just plain gullible and will believe anything. This isn’t the first time though, the Jewish people have been swayed by a false prophet, and until they get over this penchant for self-destruction they’ll continue to be lead to the slaughter.

  • Absolutly Brilliant Ipsy he he he,we owned em lock stock n barell he he ha Banks Politicians military ha ha Industrial complex and we ha ha ha he he he dropped the ha ha ha baton he he we even forgot about war ha ha ha and spoiled our kids he he he.We are going to triple your wage and get you a job where ever once our man Perry is on the throne forgot about war hah hah hah,see you at the BARMITZFA hehe.

    i wonder how little it will take to lure them back onto the range. will they buy lip service or have they shut the door on him. if it’s just a warning shot across the bow…….he only has to flimflam hoodwink and bamboozle them until the election and then turn the real obama loose.

  • vagabond trader

    @#8 Redwine:

    Thank you for saying exactly what has been on my mind for some time. This obsession with the mythical “all powerful” Jewish vote is wearing.

    Less than about 2.5% of the US population are Jews, do the math. All the Christians, blacks and Hispanics who voted for Ubama would have assured his victory in 2008 sans the Jewish vote.

  • squeaky

    anytime you see the chickens hiring a fox to watch the coop you have to just wonder.

  • squeaky

    maybe the jewish vote is more important for the donations? how many deep pockets.

  • David

    I used to sit next to a holocaust survivor in synagogue. He once said to me ‘you can give the Jews ten holocausts and they still won’t learn’. The fact that 55% would still vote for Obama is mind-blowing

  • KC

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has steel balls.
    Lecture him? He should have bitched slapped him, PERIOD!

    @31 David: I used to sit next to a holocaust survivor in synagogue. He once said to me ‘you can give the Jews ten holocausts and they still won’t learn’.

    Walking thru the diamond district in Manhatten several yrs ago. Almost all stores were owned by Jews. I stood looking down the street and laughed. When my husband asked me why? I said, “look at that, don’t you find it alittle ironic that the street is loaded down with Mercedes Benz”?

    I saw the Jews get into them and drive off. You would think just alittle bitty boycott is justified!!!!

  • eaglewingz08

    It doesn’t matter just because Jews (or most Jews) are starting to disapprove of Obama doesn’t mean that he will not get 75 percent or more of the Jewish vote next November. Lesser of two evils philosophy (only Obama is the greater evil, but most Jews are beholden to socialist democrap philosophy).

    Judaism teaches social responsibility. It teaches that a people should work together to take care of all of their own. It teaches that God’s commandment, “Love your neighbor,” is something that ought to instruct the way a government operates.

    A lot of Jewish people have found themselves philosophically aligned with socialism because of the benefits promised by socialists. The Communist Party in the US at one time relied heavily on Jewish support. This could be because so many people the Eastern Bloc and Europe brought their bodies here, and carried a serf’s viewpoint with them: George Soros comes to mind.

    The problems that Americans have historically had with both Socialism and Communism have had to do, not with the ideas and benefits promised by those philosophies, but with the totalitarian, ham-handed means the adherents of those philosophies have used. Americans have instead picked and chosen among what they thought were the better specific proposals with respect to laws of both Socialist and Communist ideas, discarding for the most part the rest.

    So, we have child labor laws, and a limited work week, government agencies to oversee industries for various purposes, etc. We do not have forced labor, nationalized industries, forced communal farming, etc.

    A LOT of these people were raised on the notion that Republicans are mainly rich, ungenerous people. They’ve been told that Republican principles are all about cruelty and greed on the part of the wealthy, and that, to be effective, charity must be forced.

    So, the only way they will vote for a Republican is if they feel compelled to vote against the Democrat.

    The Tea Parties have the potential to change that paradigm.

    My family fought and bled in WWII.

    I married into a family that lost many members in WWII, mainly for being Jewish.

    The mistake the German jews made, was that they threw away their children that went out into the larger society, cutting them off, and pretending that they had died. They utterly failed to take in the lessons of the Books of Ruth and Esther.

    I am a Ruth. That is my family that gets hurt when the government does something cruel and stupid, whatever the claimed motivation. If the family members are too disconnected, or foolish, to recognize what’s happening, then I will speak up like Esther on their behalf (honestly, whether they want me to, or not), because I am in a position to do so.

    And so should you.

    History repeat itself. Jews voted solidly for Franklin Roosevelt. Yet, Uncle Joe’s nephew stuck it to the Jews whenever it could.

    Does anyone remember the ship Saint Louis? Churchill and Roosevelt knew early in the world about the death camps yet nothing was done to stop their operation or destroy the tracks that led there.
