Unbelievable: Majority of Orthodox Jews vote for Obama
The Republican Jewish coalition did a survey of 1,000 Jewish voters last week, and while admittedly there were only 119 who self-selected as 'Orthodox,' the results are deeply disturbing. If you go to page 29 at this link, you will see that 48% voted for Obama, while 44% voted for Romney (Hat Tip: Gary P). Sad, but true.
So what happened? I can tell you that maybe not all of those who self-selected as Orthodox are really true blue Orthodox, but that's irrelevant. I can tell you that the sample size may have been too small to be meaningful, and that may also be true.
But I can also tell you that there are an awful lot of Orthodox Jews out there who don't have their heads screwed on straight.
And that's what I aim to change.
Because if we don't stick up for ourselves, no one else will.
