the Jewish community may not support Obama financially. That's very important, because in the 2008 elections, Jews provided about 60% of the Democrats' money.This time they may not even do that. The money may not come at all. via israelmatzav.blogspot.com

No, Not All Jews Are Liberal--And They Are A Growing Presence In Conservative Media
If you give us a viable candidate, we will vote Republican. But if you expect us to vote for Sarah Palin, you’ve got to be crazy. - Disenchanted Jewish Democrat, in No Exodus, Politico, July 5, 2011Many reviews already have appeared of "The Undefeated," the soon-to-be-released documentary about Sarah Palin's tenure in Alaska. Yet none of them - even in The Los Angeles Times, Huffington Post or Politico.com - mentions that nearly all of the film's many pro-Palin media talking heads are Jews.Jews are known for being liberal. They are also known for consistently, if not persistently, voting for Democrats. And that is not going to change--in the short term.
Benjamin Korn, Jews on the Rise in Conservative 'New Media', July 7, 2011
But that does not change the fact that Jews are becoming prominent Conservative voices.
In the example above of Jews who enthusiastically support Sarah Palin, Korn lists: Internet news mogul Andrew Breitbart, nationally syndicated radio talk show host Mark Levin and L.A.'s radio phenom Tammy Bruce. The list does not end there. There is Matt Drudge, whose website averages 30 million hits per day--and close to a billion hits each month month. Other Jewish Conservative voices include:
Perhaps one of the things most noticeable about Jewish Conservatives is that they have as a group not been noticeable--perhaps because they are becoming more commonplace.

Certainly there is another reason why Jews, per se, have attracted so little notice in the conservative new media: the change in American conservatism itself. Ethnically diverse and intellectually formidable, today's conservatism is reliably pro-Israel, comfortably Judeo-Christian and for the most part promotes a nuanced social agenda.Of course, the fact that Jewish Conservatives are becoming more of a force in the media does not necessarily mean that Jews as a group are going to start voting conservative--but they are a growing reminder that the Jewish Democratic vote may become something that cannot be taken for granted.

In a movement that is credible and hospitable to American Jews, and from which the ethno-centrism of yore is largely absent, Jewish journalists will flourish.
