Obama’s Jewish Support Continues to Erode – Down 13 Points Since May
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lectures Barack Obama in the Oval Office on the dangers facing Israel back in May.
Obama’s approval rating among Jewish Americans is down to 55 percent – a five point drop from June and a 13 point drop from May which is when he made the demand that Israel use the 1949 Armistice lines as the starting point for negotiations instead of as the goal of negotiations.
Four out of 10 Jewish Americans currently disapprove of Obama, according to polling data provided to POLITICO by Gallup, which has yet to post the numbers on its website.
This 40 percent disapproval rating is 8 percent higher than the 32 percent disapproval rating among Jewish Americans that was last reported by Gallup in June.
Together, the rise in disapproval and dip in approval ratings are a net negative 11 point downturn for Obama among Jews.
