Obama Garners 69 Percent of Jewish Vote in CNN Exit Poll

By: JTA

President Obama won 69 percent of the Jewish vote according to an exit poll.

The poll, posted on CNN’s website, was commensurate with projections by preelection polls by Gallup, the American Jewish Committee, among others, that Obama would win between 65 and 70 percent of the Jewish vote.

Both parties blitzed Jewish voters in swing states, particularly Ohio and Florida, ahead of the election.

Jews constituted 2 percent of the overall CNN response group, but the network did not reveal the total number of people polled, so it was impossible to assess a margin of error.

Republicans noted the discrepancy between Tuesday’s numbers and the 78 percent Obama garnered in 2008 exit polls.

Democrats, citing a more recent broader study of the 2008 results, now say Obama earned 74 percent of that year’s Jewish vote, and suggested that Tuesday’s showing was within the margin of error.

On social media, Republican and Democratic Jews argued over whether Tuesday night’s results showed a substantial drop in Jewish support for Obama.

Two organizations — J Street and the Republican Jewish Coalition — planned to release separate exit polls on Wednesday morning.

    Once again the Media is "assuming" those who are Jewish that they voted for B.O. This Jew did not and I know of MANY MANY Jews who did not. Yet, if you run a corrupted campaign, have a bottomless pit machine behind you, you will win. With all the reports out that machines were putting "Obama" when the true vote went to Romney – nothing was done (as usual). This is so wrong. Yet we have no true Justice in the US – and yes we are going to see History Repeat itself. Read the Rise and Fall of the Third Reich again – and compare it to now. May I soon be able to make Aliyah as my country the USA is no longer the land of the free, liberty and for those who wish to practice their faith freely. Our founding fathers have been spat upon by those who call themselves "Democraps". And I am very much ashamed of this country. May HaShem replace there furhrer soon.
