Sixty-five percent of American Jewish voters back Barack Obama, while only 24% support Mitt Romney, according to a new American Jewish Committee national survey

Romney has made a strong effort to attract Jewish voters, visiting Israel and maintaining that he'd be a strong ally of Israel than Obama. But he hasn't picked up Jewish support. A March 2012 survey found that 61% chose Obama and 28% for Romney. The trend follows a historic pattern. In 2008, according to exit polls, Obama got more than three-fourths of the Jewish vote.
