An October poll released by the Gallup organization showed that Jewish voters favor Barack Obama over John McCain by more than 3 to 1
74% of American Jews said they would vote for Obama with only 22% saying they would vote for McCain. The poll, which has interviewed over 650 Jewish registered voters each month since June 2008, shows American Jews growing increasingly comfortable with Obama since July, when the Illinois Senator tied up the Democratic Party nomination. The poll shows support for McCain among Jews stood at a high of 34% in June, before beginning its downward turn in July after Obama's nomination.
