The Middle Path, One Day At A Time

US Jews favor Obama 2:1

Leave a comment

American Jews favor Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama by a ratio of two-to-one, according to survey results being released Monday by researchers at New York University.

The data, taken from a nationwide poll conducted in early September, indicates that Jews as a group are 30 percent more likely than other white, non-Hispanic voters to support Obama.

Surprisingly, the poll found that gap widened to nearly 40% among Jews who rank Israel “very high” as a factor in their choice of candidate, indicating that Israel is a key issue for Jews across the political spectrum.
