President Obama remains popular among Jewish voters, survey shows
President Obama remains popular among Jewish voters, with more than six in 10 supporting his reelection, according to a Public Religion Research Institute poll released Wednesday. The presidential campaign poll, part of the institute’s 2012 Survey of Jewish Values, found Obama with 62 percent support. Only 30 percent said they would vote for a Republican challenger. Obama’s level of support is similar to where it was at the same point in the 2008 campaign, the institute reported. The president has largely retained his Jewish base of four years ago: 86 percent of those who voted for him in the last election said they would do so again this fall.
