Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, 78% of Jews voted for Obama, also higher than four years ago, although there's a worrying bit to that: Jews were the only group in which Obama did better among older voters than among younger voters.  Now, maybe it's simply a large margin of error that's responsible for those numbers, but, still, the "Obama is an Anti-Semite"/Israel-4EVAH meme may have some resonance with younger Jews.

I'm inclined to agree that a share of a group's vote that high might suggest something unhealthy, long-term.  I'm just saying there's a lot of history behind it.  It's not simply blind allegiance.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
