J Street Poll: Obama's Jewish support trounces Republicans

WASHINGTON – US President Barack Obama handily defeats his current Republican presidential opponents among Jewish voters, according to a poll put out by J Street Thursday.
At the same time, the majority of American Jews disapproves of his handling of the Arab-Israeli conflict, the poll found.
Obama currently enjoys 63 percent of the American Jewish vote compared to 24% for former Mitt Romney and 67% when facing off against Michele Bachmann, who received 19% support, according to the poll.
Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, and Bachmann, a Minnesota Congresswoman, are leading polls of announced contenders for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.
