Shocking Poll: Jews Defecting to McCain in Droves

A shocking new poll shows that Jewish voters in New York prefer McCain over Obama by a margin of 54-32 percent. That is even more remarkable because the last poll showed that New York Jews preferred Obama over McCain by a margin of 55-42 percent. That is a 35-point reversal! More details on the Commentary blog, Contentions.

Is this for real? Are Jews finally waking up to the rather unpleasant scent of anti-Semitism that surrounds Obama? Is Obama's 20-year relationship with the "Zionism is racism" believing, former Nation of Islam member, Rev. Wright, finally catching up to him? Yeah, that's right -- Rev. Wright is former member of the Nation of Islam, as was reported by The New Republic.

To this day, Rev. Wright retains close links with the Nation of Islam. Last year Rev. Wright honored Farrakhan with an award and said Farrakhan "truly epitomized greatness." The Nation of Islam also provides Rev. Wright with bodyguards whenever he appears in public. Bear in mind that the Nation of Islam teaches that whites and Jews are "devils" and were created by a mad scientist named "Yakub."

Or perhaps it was the Hamas endorsement of Obama that finally roused the Jews. The Hamas endorsement makes perfect sense when you consider that Obama was long known in Chicago for his pro-Palestinian views, as Ralph Nader recently acknowledged. To this day, Obama remains friends with Rashid Khalidi, a former PLO spokesman. And if you think this is no big deal, ask yourself why the LA Times recently reported that Palestinians "see a friend in Obama."

So are Jews finally waking up or is this poll merely an outlier? Stay tuned.

The female and hispanic votes are far more valuable and invidia inducing, but every bit counts.

Que es "invidia"?

"In Roman mythology, Invidia was the sense of envy or jealousy, who might be personified, for strictly literary purposes, as a goddess."

Thanks for the great reads.

McCain himself was the victim of push-polling in the 2000 primaries. It isn't cricket in my view.

I think we should hold ourselves in public debate to a higher standard of truthfulness, which should include taking care not to say things that are technically true but are designed to create a mis-impression in the minds of the listener. The "Hamas endorsement", for example, appears to be a cite to an offhand remark in an interview. Not quite the same thing as McCain accepting the endorsement of the NRA. The push poll in question is therefore designed to mislead Jewish voters about Obama. Not up to my standards of truthfulness.

Your comments actually seem to be responsive to this post:

In any event, whether the Hamas endorsement was formal or informal, the point is exactly the same: Hamas prefers Obama. In fact, Obama has received illegal campaign contributions from Hamas members in Gaza. The "poor, starving" Gazans somehow have enough money to make illegal campaign contributions to Obama. Strange, isn't it?

I've read and reread the survey's press release you linked to, and I can't find any breakdown of voters or percentages by religion. CTRL-F for "Jewish" or shorter versions find nothing at all. The only link of the page goes to a 404. Where exactly did the info in this blog come from? I'd love to see the source.

That's odd. Maybe they edited the press release. It was covered elsewhere in the media. See here:
