Mark McNulty of the Republican Jewish Coalition joins me to talk about how Obama's poor relationship with Israel may impact Jewish voting patterns.
American Jews have historically supported the Democratic Party, going back at least as far as FDR.
However, McNulty says that the younger generation are more flexible and less bound by tradition.
They're carefully watching Obama's treatment of Benjamin Netanyahu and his overall approach to the Middle East, and they don't necessarily like what they see.
The result may be a gradual but still significant erosion of Jewish support for the Democrats -- a support some would say the party has taken for granted for too long.
McNulty says, “Because of a lot of the actions that Barack Obama has taken, the way that he’s treated Benjamin Netanyahu and the State of Israel, [Republicans] saw a 10% gain up to 31% in 2012, and also in exit polls from the midterm elections, it was around 34% of Jews who voted for Republicans. We expect and we hope that this number will keep going up as Democrats continue to prove that they may not have Jews' best interest in mind.”
