Jewish voters thinking twice about voting for Obama Ira Foreman has a tough job nobody could imagine would be tough just four years ago. Foreman is the man in charge of getting Jewish voters to the polls to support the re-election of Barack Obama. This was supposed to be a snap job. Foreman should be living it up in Charlotte knowing he had his people lined up and ready to go. But things have gone from bad to worse in the relationship between the Democrats and the Jewish voter. At this point just two months from Election Day the support Jews will give Obama is not at all a sure thing. Those saying they will vote for him have dwindled from 78% in 2008 to only 64% at best today. While in and of itself the Jewish vote is not very large, it has been a consistent “canary in a coal mine” indicator of trouble for Democrat presidential candidates. Since 1916 no Democrat has ever lost the Jewish vote but when the percent of support from Jews goes down below 68% no Democrat has won. . . . . . . . . . . .
