The Jews and Obama

Jews vote.jpgJews back Obama over McCain by 61 percent to 32 percent, according to a new Gallup poll. No surprise that they back Clinton over McCain by a higher margin, but it’s not that much higher: 66 percent to 27 percent. I predict that come November, McCain will draw no more than 30 percent of the Jewish vote against Obama. That would be just under what Reagan drew against Walter Mondale in 1984, almost twice what Bob Dole drew against Bill Clinton in 1996, and six points higher than what George W. Bush drew against John Kerry in 2004.
