Awesome: Only 43% of American Jews plan to vote for Obama, 34% in Florida

Maybe American Jews aren't so dumb after all.

A newly-released poll claims that only 43% of American Jews plan to vote to re-elect Barack Hussein Obama.
Secure America Now has just released a new poll showing that only 43 percent of Jews plan to vote to reelect Obama in 2012. If this holds, it would be a considerable drop from the 78 percent of the Jewish vote Obama received in 2008, and from the standard 75–80 percent of the Jewish vote that Democratic political strategists have come to expect and rely upon.

The bipartisan poll, done by John McLaughlin and Pat Caddell, also found that Obama is likely to have particular trouble with Jews in the all-important state of Florida, as only 34 percent of Florida’s Jews would vote to reelect him. Unsurprisingly, Obama does better among Jews in blue states like California, Illinois, and Maryland, but Republican strategists are unlikely to contest those states heavily, whereas the Florida vote really matters.

In addition, in a positive sign for the future, Obama’s worst showing in the poll was among Jews under 40. Sixty-one percent of these younger Jews reported that they planned to vote for someone other than Obama for president in 2012. This could indicate that the strange and continuing hold that the Democratic party has had over American Jews could finally be loosening. This latest poll is bad news for Obama in the short term, and problematic for the Democrats in the long term as well.
I'd love to see the questions for this one - only the last paragraph specifically says that they will vote for someone else.

Will they vote for a Republican or will they stay home? Obviously, voting for a Republican (or at least for most Republicans) would be much better.

The election is in 18 months, if this trend continues then it will be very apparent that Obama not only has a problem with getting Jews to vote for him, but the more important thing: Getting Jews to give him money.

This topic of Jewish voting patterns in presidential elections has been the subject of a number of interesting threads and comments. I wanted to find out more so I just did a quick google and found this very interesting article at blog "Risking Hemlock". The blogger is a self-described "progressive" but he writes in a pretty fair, non-strident style. The article is "The History of the Jewish Vote".

There's lots of interesting info and statistics going back to the pres. election of 1916. He also discusses his own historical analysis of why Jewish Americans have been a traditionally liberal voting block. One sentence that caught my eye, "That said, the Jewish preference for Democrats over Republicans is so noteworthy that even the least popular Democrat (Jimmy Carter) still received more Jewish votes than the most popular Republican (Dwight Eisenhower)." That's sad. Even a malevolent anti-Semitic, dangerously stupid man like Jimmy Carter got more Jewish American votes than a genuine war hero, a proven leader, a statesman, a really decent man like Ike.

Not that I'm getting on a high horse about non-thinking, reflexively Democratic Jewish voters. It was tens of millions of mentally lazy, non-critical American goys -not including me, thank you!- who put Obozo in the White House in 2008, when we could have had a decent man with a long and fine record of service to America who' probably have been at least an adequate president, John McCain. As I see it, Obozo only took a few months in office to dethrone Jimmy Carter as "Worst American President Ever", leaving Carter in overall 2nd place with "Worst President of the 20th Century".

The 2012 elections are going to be REALLY interesting...

Jews won't vote for a Republican. They will stay home like other disaffected Democratic voters. Obama hasn't given people a reason to re-elect him.
