Gallup has started tracking Jewish voters for the 2012 presidential elections, and its findings are commensurate with other polling, with President Obama enjoying a 35 point lead over Mitt Romney.
The poll of 576 Jews culled from the pollster’s daily tracking of registered U.S. voters from April 11-June 5, found that Jewish voters favored Obama over the former Massachusetts governor and all-but-certain Republican nominee 64-29.
With a margin of error of 5 percentage points, that’s a statistical dead heat with recent polls commissioned by the left-leaning Workmen’s Circle, which had Obama-Romney at 59-29, and by the American Jewish Committee, which had them at 61-28 percent.
It also is commensurate with polling in the same period by Gallup during the 2008 election, when Obama vs. John McCain, the then GOP candidate, scored 61-32, 57-35 and 62-31 in April, May and June of that year, respectively.JTA
