Little by little Obama is chipping away at his support from Jewish Americans because of his love affair with Islam. The Jewish population is in a quandary. With the next presidential election just 16 months away, they must determine whether or not they will vote for Obama who supports all their liberal agenda, or if they will take a stand on behalf of their fellow Jews in Israel who are being thrown to the wolves by the Obama regime.
We must be realistic and not assume that liberal Jews will flock to the Republican nominee in 2012 because doing so would betray the liberal causes for which Jewish Americans are so dedicated. Some may chose to stay home on Election Day. Nevertheless, in a close election the loss of even a small percentage of the Jewish population could prove to be costly. Let's hope and pray that is the case.

Dick Morris: Obama losing Jewish voters
"Dick Morris has drilled down a bit into those poll results I presented on Tuesday and has concluded that Barack Hussein Obama is losing even more Jewish voters.
'If the election were held today, President Obama would get only 56 percent of the Jewish vote against a generic Republican candidate, down from the 78 percent he won in 2008 and less than the 74 percent John Kerry received in 2004.
This is the key finding of a survey of 1,000 Jewish voters I conducted from June 20-27 using telephone and Internet interviews. After asking basic questions of the entire sample, I proceeded to drill down with more detailed questions for the Jews in the sample who identified themselves as Democrats. The overall survey has a 95 percent confidence of a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percent.
Triggering the increasing Jewish disaffection with Obama is opposition to his proposal that an Israeli return to ’67 borders be the starting point of peace negotiations. By 10-83, Jewish voters opposed the plan. Jewish Democrats opposed it by 10-67. Asked if President Obama is “too biased against Israel,” Jewish voters as a whole agreed with the charge by 39-30, while 32 percent of Jewish Democrats also agreed (and 40 percent of Jewish Democrats disagreed).'
Read the whole thing. This one is awesome.
Shmuel Rosner adds:
'Obama, concludes Morris "is in the process of breaking the close relationship between his party and the Jewish community". I think this is probably an overstatement. However, one should not underestimate the level of Jewish uneasiness with Israel-related policies of the Obama administration. As Ben Smith aptly writes: "perhaps the clearest sign that there's something afoot: A new push from the Obama campaign to win back pro-Israel Jewish support". In other words: If the Obama people are worried, there's reason to suspect that the numbers discussed above do not meet their expectations.'
