#rsrh JTA: Jewish support of GOP highest since 1988!

…at least, that’s how JTA could have reported the news that a recent poll showed a 61/28 breakdown of the Jewish vote between Obama & Romney.  I will grant that they reported the 78/22 breakdown in 2008 between Obama/McCain… but you would think that somebody over there would have admitted that, yeah, we haven’t seen numbers this good since Bush 41’s 455 in 1988.  Of course, a person who looks at this table might have come to the conclusion that there has been a slow eroding of Jewish support for Democratic candidates.  Or that Barack Obama is probably not going to get that demographic back, either.

You know, Barack Obama is backsliding among a lot of demographics, lately. Just thought that I’d get that on the record, and all.

    Except of course with women. As the MSM says about 1,000 times a day.

    Wonder how Obama’s circumventing congress to fund the Palestine Authority (correct name ???) will go over. That was in the Friday night news dump. I can’t think of a better word for that BTW.

    I don’t get it – he’s losing so many demographics, yet polls between him and Romney are so close. Why? Shouldn’t Romney be running away with it by now?

    Come on, let’s look at the demographics he’s lost support:
    – Jews
    – Hispanics
    – Independents
    – Young under-30 voters

    Name one demographic that he’s doing better with than he did in 2008.
