In the first significant drop in Jewish support for a Democratic Party
candidate in over two decades, President Barack Obama has seen a
10-point plunge in support among Jewish voters, according to the Gallup
To put the decline in perspective, Obama is pulling in the same support
among Jews as Michael Dukakis, the former Massachusetts governor who
lost to George H. W. Bush in 1988.
Gallup notes the 10-point drop is "five points worse than his decline among all registered voters compared with 2008.”
Specifically, Obama currently has the support of 64 percent of Jewish
registered voters, according to Gallup. This is 10 percent less than the
percentage of Jews who voted for Obama in 2008. Republican Mitt Romney
enjoys 29 percent support among Jews.
