Big Problems for Romney - Jewish and Isreali Voters Heavily Favor Obama Over Romney

HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. (RNS) Hilda Finkel has heard the Republican call that she should reconsider her support for President Barack Obama because he isn't sufficiently pro-Israel.

She has heard GOP nominee Mitt Romney accuse Obama of "throwing Israel under bus." She has seen the billboards here in Broward County greeting Jewish voters with this plaintive message: "Oy vey Obama. Had enough yet?"

But she is unswayed. "I am Jewish, and I care about Israel, but the most important question is jobs and the economy," Finkel, 94, said in an interview in this south Florida community. "I'm going with Obama."

For all the efforts by the Romney campaign to court voters like Finkel, Obama's campaign is expressing growing confidence that they have been able to keep Jewish voters. According to the Gallup daily tracking poll between July 1 and Sept. 10, 70 percent of registered Jewish voters plan to vote for Obama vs. 25 percent for Romney. In the spring, polls showed Obama up 64-25 percent against a generic GOP candidate.

Obama will be back in Florida this week with stops in Coral Gables for a forum hosted by the Spanish-language network Univision and in Tampa for a fundraiser, and his campaign is stepping up efforts to secure the voting bloc Obama won by 74 percent to 21 percent over Sen. John McCain in 2008.

"There is very little Mr. Romney and (vice presidential candidate Paul) Ryan offer in their agenda -- from the economy to health care to foreign policy -- that a majority of Jewish Americans are comfortable with," said Robert Wexler, a former Florida congressman who is serving as a surrogate to the Jewish community for Obama. "Conversely, Jewish Americans are comfortable with President Obama and his agenda."

So, what you are saying is that Obama is down 4% among a key demographic in Florida over the past 4 years? And you think this is good news for Obama?

Jewish people have never trusted Mormons, that's old news. Shalom Alakba!

The Jewish hatred for Mormons is well documented. I bet the President's "surrogate" mentions Romney's religion whenever he can and I am sure the polls ask things like, "how do you feel about having a Mormon President".

The problem is that the Jewish faith believes Jerusalem is a holy land, where as the Mormon faith believes Jackson County, Missouri is the holy land.

You can't have Jesus walking around in different holy lands. Certainly it's offensive that Mormons refuse recognize Jerusalem as a holy land.

It's offensive to read your grammar.

Poll after poll shows that Jewish people think very favorably of Mormons. In fact, they place them ahead of almost any other denomination or religion. Just check the Jewish Values Survey from any given year for proof of that.

Out of curiousity though, why are people lying about the Jewish respect for Mormons? Sure, they get pissed when Mormons do that deceased baptism crap, but Jewish sentiments for Mormons still remains high poll after poll.

Are Democrats that worried that they keep lying?

Apparently the problem with your theory is that while Judaism accepts that Jesus was Jewish, they don't accept him as the messiah. So where he walked around is of no concern to them.

As to recognizing Jerusalem....do you believe they are more offended at the Mormons take on holy lands or the DNC for not recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel?

On the bright side, they ALL hate you for being so ignorant.

Eventually more of the Jews are going to realize that the modern godless anti-Israel progressive Dem party hates them. It's not father Clinton's Oldsmobile any more.

The Jews are for the Jews. They look at Mormons the way you'd look at a stinkbug.

As baffling and unexplainable as both practices are, their tradition for voting democrat is just as strong as their tradition for circumcision.
