Republicans Challenging Obama on Jewish Vote in 2012

JointMedia News Service has been syndicating an intriguing article headlined – Which Republican candidate has the Jewish vote? It might take the reader a while to realize that writers Masha Rifkin and Jacob Kamaras, or their editor, are accepting as fact the possibility that Jewish voters will be in play on the Republican side of the presidential campaign this year. This is a watershed moment – not since 1980, when Reagan trounced Carter — have so many Jews been prepared to support a Republican against a sitting Democratic President.
And, as it turns out, all the Republicans who are still standing are moving in on the Jewish vote, save for Ron Paul who just doesn’t seem to care about the need to court Jews on the path to the White House.
The Jews, for a variety of reasons, appreciate being courted.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich have all gone on record with heated pro-Israel declarations, which could make picking one of them harder than you think.
