Student Union opens ‘hasbara’ room in effort to fill public diplomacy vacuum.
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.
