Will they turn Republican in 2012?

  • American Jews voted overwhelmingly for Barack Obama in the historic elections of 2008. Are they now losing their enthusiasm for his presidency? If so, is that because of his stance on Israel or domestic factors? How might that affect his chances of re-election? And how can we explain why some Jews are leaning towards the Republican option while others are leaders of the Occupy Wall Street movement?
