Maybe they do care, after all. When hearing that 78% of American Jews voted for the Israel-hating Barack Obama, it leads one to believe that Israel was not an important priority to this voting bloc.
But now, the tides they are a turnin' because in a recent poll, only 42% of Jews said that they would vote for Obama. An amazing change from 78% a year and a half ago. America's Jews must be either turned off by Obama's hatred for Israel, or perhaps they would like to see the country rescued from the president's massive assault on the economy, or possibly it's a combination of the two.

Oh My… After a Year in Office Obama Loses Almost Half of His Jewish Support
Do you remember when Jesse Jackson said that under Obama Jews would lose all of their clout?
He was right.

Oh my… In little over one year in office Barack Obama has lost nearly half of his support among American Jews.
Israel National News reported:
'United States President Barack Obama has lost nearly half of his support among American Jews, a poll by the McLaughlin Group has shown.
The US Jews polled were asked whether they would: (a) vote to re-elect Obama, or (b) consider voting for someone else. 42% said they would vote for Obama and 46%, a plurality, preferred the second answer. 12% said they did not know or refused to answer.
In the Presidential elections of 2008, 78% of Jewish voters, or close to 8 out of 10, chose Obama. The McLaughlin poll held nearly 18 months later, in April 2010, appears to show that support down to around 4 out of 10.
The poll showed that key voter segments including Orthodox/Hassidic voters, Conservative voters, voters who have friends and family in Israel and those who have been to Israel, are all more likely to consider voting for someone other than Obama.'"
