*Gulp* Only 2 in 5 Jewish American Voters Would Vote to Re-Elect Obama
Oh Boy… Obama won’t like this one bit…
The latest poll of Jewish American voters found that only 2 in 5 voters say they would vote to re-elect Obama.
Secure America Now reported:
In a poll conducted by Democrat Pat Caddell and Republican John McLaughlin for the non-partisan organization Secure America Now http://www.secureamericanow.org/ , American Jewish voters expressed admiration for many of President Obama’s personal qualities (honesty, leadership, intelligence…) they also expressed deep concern about the state of Israel/US relations and policies being championed by the Obama Administration.
93% are concerned about Israel being threatened by Arab nations and Iran that want to destroy Israel.
81% are against Israel being forced to return to its pre-1967 borders.
81% agree with the Administration as they oppose the UN recognizing a Palestinian State
76% are concerned about Islamic terrorism committed in the US by American born Muslims
73% believe Jerusalem should remain the united capital of Israel and only 8% support that the US should force Israel to give away parts of Jerusalem.
88% believes that a prerequisite for Palestinian Statehood is their recognition of Israel as a Jewish State.
And by a a 54-21 majority they feel that the Arab Spring has made the world more dangerous for Israel.
That this divide may have political consequences can be seen in the answers to the following: Despite a job approval rating of 63% for President Obama, only two in five Jewish voters (43% ) say they would vote to re-elect President Obama. The plurality (48% ) would consider someone else and 9% are undecided.
