Poll: Obama Losing Support among U.S. Jews

Ad Feedback

American Jews are losing confidence in President Obama's dealings with Israel, according to a new survey by the American Jewish Committee.

The poll found that 49 percent of all U.S. Jews still approve of the Obama administration's treatment of Israel - a 6 percent drop since March. Forty-five percent said they disapprove of the president's policies.

Most of those polled said they plan to vote in the Nov. 2 midterm elections. Fifty-seven percent said they prefer a Democrat-controlled Congress. One-third said they would like to see Republicans take control.
"To me, the common denominator pretty much across the board is a sense of growing anxiety and apprehension," David Harris, executive director of the AJC, said. "There's a sense that things here and abroad are not necessarily getting better." 

Researchers interviewed 800 self-identified Jews selected from a consumer mail panel between Sept. 6 and Oct. 10. The margin of error for the poll is 3 percent.
