President Obama will most likely win all of New York's 29 electoral college votes in the 2012 election -- with or without strong Jewish support. Jews only represent 8.4% of the New York population, and Obama will likely get more than half of their votes. However, don't confuse the Jewish vote and the Jewish impact. Jews have a large effect on influence and fundraising. The Weekly Standard reports:
President Obama's support among Jewish voters in the state of New York has dropped 22 percentage points in only a month, according to the results of a just released poll.
The poll, conducted by Siena College, finds that currently President Obama has the support of 51 percent of Jewish voters, while 43 percent are opposed to him. Five percent are undecided. That means, Obama's lead among Jewish voters is at 8 percentage points.
