In the second day of IBD/TIPP’s daily tracking, Mitt Romney surged to a 5 point lead over President Obama among Likely voters. In what might seem even more shocking, is the lowest level of support the President has among ‘likely’ Jewish voters.
According to the poll, Barack Obama attracts only 47% of Jewish voters who are likely to go out and vote, which is a sharp decline from the 78% he got in 2008. Mitt Romney doesn’t gain too much, as he remains with 25% of support. However, 28 percent – which is a large number sitting on the fence – are currently undecided or not sure from whom to vote for.
NOTE: The sample is a small sample in contrary to the overall poll. Also worth noting: This is the first likely voters poll, since the AJC, Gallup and other only published polls among registered voters.
