New RJC Ad: 'I've Never Voted For A Republican For President, But This Time I will'
Well done, and right to the point..
In another related piece of info, a well known Democratic pollster reveals that President Obama probably lacks enough Jewish votes right now to carry Florida:
President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are “in a 50-50 election right now,” political analyst and Democratic pollster Doug Schoen tells Newsmax.TV, adding that the president is lacking the crucial Jewish vote in Florida needed to win the election.
“I could make a compelling argument why either side is going to win,” Schoen tells Newsmax in an exclusive interview. “But I will say this: There’s never been as much at stake in an election in recent memory as there is in this one.
“Two competing views, two competing visions, and – from where I sit – this is a fight and a contest that has transcended importance for ourselves and for our children.”
One of Obama's biggest hurdles: capturing Florida's Jewish voters. The president, polls show, has about 60-65 percent of the Jewish vote, but, says Schoen, if Obama does not win “a full 75 percent...it could, in fact, be decisive.”
It will vary from state to state, but barring something crazy happening I still think in the end that President Obama will end up with a Jewish vote in the low 60's. A substantial drop from 78%, but still far more than he deserves.
To Jews who are conflicted about this, here's what I have to say. If you can't find it within yourself to pull the lever for a pro-Israel Republican, fine. But at least don't vote to put an anti-Israel president back in the White House for four more years.
Just don't vote for president. At least do that much.
