This is the headline and picture from the Forward tonight. Wow! Obama is recovering Jewish support rapidly.... who could have predicted this headline. OK, I did. This morning as a matter of fact.
Personally, I believe that this is just a classic "rope-a-dope" strategy. That means the Democrats are overplaying the depth of Obama's Jewish problem to set expectations as low as possible and will overstate any positive trend in Jewish opinion between now and the election. When the Jewish poll numbers bounce back after the inevitable Democrat counter push, they will declare the Romney has somehow lost the Jewish vote.It is a little sooner than I expected, but it fits the formula. The momentum is with Obama on the Jewish Vote!
The poll, released Monday, shows Obama with 61 percent of the Jewish vote, as opposed to 28 percent for Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who is the likely Republican nominee.I wonder if this means that they think this is the best it will get for Obama?
That’s an improvement for the president over a previous AJC survey in September, when Obama scored 50 percent and Romney 32 percent.
