NY Jewish Boroughs Voted Romney

An analysis of a recent New York Times article examining the presidential voting trends of all the New York precincts determined that almost all Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods voted for Republican candidate Mitt Romney over Democratic incumbent Barack Obama.

According to an article by Front Page Mag, Romney won over 90 percent of the Jewish votes in Borough Park, Williamsburg, Flatbush, Crown Heights, Manhattan Beach, Belle Harbor, Howard Beach, Kew Garden Hills, Brighton Beach and Sheepshead Bay.

The article noted that support for Romney was irrespective of the level of income of the neighborhoods.

    Those poor people still don't understand that Romney would have stopped all welfare payments, Social Security, dependant children credits. school subsidies etc. These are the people Romney called the takers and who he considers think they're entitled to government payments. Even his own political party said he was a big mistake for America. What were they thinking in those neighborhoods?

  2. Charlie Hall says:

    Obama won the Jewish areas in Manhattan and The Bronx.

  3. enough with the Obama election already, you one he one ,stop acting like a child and rubbing it in. Move on!

  4. No doubt, the readers of the Jewish Press must relieved to know that most in their community did not vote for that uppity shvartzer with the Muslim name.

  5. Charlie Hall says:

    Shmuel, I'm not the one running these articles!

  6. Now is a good time for all Jews to try to influence President Obama to do the right things. Your comments are exactly what we should not be dong.About 41 percent of Democrats now support Israel. We should be shooting for 91 percent .

  7. Yon Tel says:

    that's because jews aren't the majority in any ED in Manhattan
