Could Obama Lose the Jewish Vote?


Could President Obama as a Democrat lose the Jewish vote this election?


Jason Stverak, President of the Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity, seems to think so in an article just written for Watchdog.org.

If anyone had asked me this question three months ago, I would have laughed.  After knocking on doors in Highland Park during that period of time, I now can consider this theory to have some validity.

The author reviews past Jewish votes for President, including 2008 when Obama received 78% of their votes, and notices endorsements of Jewish newspapers for Mitt Romney this election cycle.  A review of election results following the Tuesday night election may ultimately determine whether Mr. Stverak's opinions have any validity.  The entire article can be read here.
