Since the time I wrote Obama and American Jews' movement from Left to Right in July 2011, there has been further disillusion of the Obama administration by not only the Jews but many Americans including many Catholics. Obama's policies are dividing our nation.
Senator Marco Rubio, in a speech in North Carolina on May 19, 2012, said (about mark 38:10 of video below) of President Obama "We have not seen such a divisive figure in modern American history as we have over the last three and a half years.” Obama is dividing the nation and forcing, not only the Jews but all of America, to choose sides in his class warfare, his first step in creating a completely socialist nation with him as it's leader. Divide and conquer. Slowly the nation is waking up to what Obama is doing and the path he is leading us down.
Rubio's speech is worth watching in its entirety.
If you are time limited, watch from time stamp 37 minutes.
While there are, and will always be staunch leftist/liberal/Progressive/Democratic die hard Jews, there are those who are moving from the far left towards the right moving toward the center and even right of center.
According to Public Religion Research Institute poll Jewish support of Obama is down from 78% in 2008 to 62% currently. That's a 16% drop. Many are seeing the failed policies of the Obama administration destroy America and her economy. They see the direction President Obama is taking, towards a socialist society, is not working. In their disillusionment many Jews, like other Americans, are moving away from socialist ideas and even away from the lesser progressive ideas and toward more centrist and conservative viewpoint. Some are simply moving away from Obama.

Never in my lifetime do I remember the federal government being sued on such a large scale.
President Obama's approval rating has been gradually declining according to Rasmussen Reports:
Even many those who remain liberal/leftist/Democratic are becoming disillusioned with Obama and will not vote for him. Many will be voting for the GOP candidate, who is likely to be Romney. Other's will be writing in or voting for a myriad of others. Some will abstain from voting altogether.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday, May 22, 2012 shows Romney gaining on President Obama with Obama earning 46% of the vote and Romney attracting 44% support. Four percent (4%) would vote for a third party candidate, while another six percent (6%) are undecided. The decline in Jewish and Catholic support will likely translate to fewer votes for Obama.
The Catholic vote was an important factor in his winning the 2008 election, losing it could mean the loss of some states, especially the swing states such as Florida. The Jewish vote could further help determine some of the swing states. It doesn't look good for the president that the states will swing his way.
