WASHINGTON - Gallup has started tracking Jewish voters for the 2012 presidential elections, and its findings are commensurate with other polling, with US President Barack Obama enjoying a 35 point lead over Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

The poll of 576 Jews culled from the pollster's daily tracking of registered US 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 Workmen's Circle, which had Obama-Romney at 59-29, and by the American Jewish Committee, which had them at 61-28 percent.
