President Obama's assault on Israel is costing him votes in the Jewish community.
The McLaughlin Group recently conducted a Poll in the Jewish community asking the participants whether they would (a) vote for President Obama again or (b) whether they consider voting for someone else. 42% said they would vote for Obama and 46% said they would consider voting for someone else. 12% said they did not know or refused to answer.
A further breakdown on the poll results can be seen here.
This is a significant development because the Jewish community has been loyal supporters of Democrats and they are credited for helping Barack Obama become President in 2008. A whopping 78% of Jewish voters or perhaps more by some people's accounts voted for Obama.
If Obama loses Jewish support as this poll suggest he will, Obama will have a tough time getting re-elected in 2012.
