The Forward admits it: More Jews are becoming Republicans

A Pew poll has found - and the Forward has reluctantly admitted it - that since 2008 more Jews are shifting to the Republican party.
“The increase among Jews is greater than in the general public, and greater than the increase in an number of other religious groups,” said Alan Cooperman, associate director for research at Pew.

Jews who support or lean Republican jumped from 20% in 2008 to 29% in 2011. And Jews who support or lean Democratic fell from 72% in 2008 to 65% in 2011. The 2011 study has a 6.5% margin of error.

Republican Jewish officials greeted the survey as a confirmation of trend they claim to have observed for years.

“Jews are shifting away from their traditional allegiance to the Democratic Party and are showing a willingness to support the Republican,” said Matt Brooks, executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition. “”The Democrats continue to lose support among Jewish voters.”

Democrats pooh-poohed the study.

“Republicans have been saying for more than 30 years that ‘this will be the year’ Jews will move to the Republican Party, and it has simply never materialized,” said David A. Harris, president of the National Jewish Democratic Council. “I’m confident 2012 will be no different and Jews will continue to vote overwhelmingly Democratic.”

The report’s broader findings suggest support for the Republican Party has increased among all major religious groups.

Even with the dip, Jews remain more Democratic than any religious group but Black Protestants. But the change among Jewish voters is particularly significant, given Jews’ traditional ties to the Democrats.
Hope springs eternal.... Unfortunately, more Jews are concerned that their daughters 'don't miss out on anything' (as Obama explained his support for unrestricted abortion not too long ago) than are concerned with the future existence of a Jewish state.

I actually don't want them to change their official party affiliation until after the primaries, if at all. They can vote the entire Republican ticket in the general election without having to change their affiliation and without even having to face the shunning of that other 60% or whatever who will never vote other than Dem. Even though they may be conflicted because of the Israel issue, they are still wearing Planned Parenthood tee shirts to services with ABORTION in big block letters. And they have not said a peep against the constant front page articles about local (huge) corruption involving community members, which amounts to ROBBING THE POOR. And not a peep about all the slaughter going on in Mexico armed on multiple sides by the U.S. govt people they have campaigned for and fueled by the street drugs sold in the U.S., which they say nothing against. "Just Say No" is still mocked to this day, even though speaking out against drugs might shrink the murderous market. So my advocacy is for them not to come over to the Republican party and drag it even farther Left than it already is because of the "social issues". Just vote Republican in the general. Please. And read Mark Levin's new book "Ameritopia" to get the info that has been blocked out by the U.S.'s Leftist education system. He has whole chapters on Locke and Montesquieu, Marx, etc, And presented by Mark Levin, rather than the marxist professors we had in college (if they even mentioned the non-marxist ones). Anyway.
