Obama Far More Popular With American Jews Than Lieberman

Remember all that talk about Senator Obama's "problem with Jewish voters"? Well, just like his problem with women, Latinos and blue collar whites, it doesn't exist. And if the 34 percent who view him unfavorably does constitute a problem, then Lieberman has a lot more to worry about.

HuffPo:

If Barack Obama has a problem among Jewish voters, then Sen. Joseph Lieberman is in monumental trouble.

Among the most high-profile Jews in Congress, Lieberman is viewed far more unfavorably than the presumptive Democratic nominee, according to a new poll. Only 37 percent of Jews view the Connecticut Independent in a favorable light compared to 48 percent who have a negative perception. As for Obama, 60 percent of Jews view him favorably while 34 percent view him unfavorably.

The findings were released as part of a recent survey of American Jews by the new progressive pro-Israel group J Street. They seem to upturn some of this year's conventional political wisdom.

Chalk up another one in the 'L' column for the beltway crowd.

UPDATE: (Nicole) I don't think cozying up to terrorists like the Cuban-American Eduardo Arocena is going to endear Holy Joe any more either, do you?
