Joe Lieberman’s Jewish Problem
Jews are among the smartest and most engaged voters when it comes to public affairs and knowing when they are being played, so it seemed like only a matter of time before they began parting ways with Joe Lieberman, John McCain’s very own Uriah Heep and a senator whose political dishonesty runs at a flood-tide pace these days.
Among high-profile Jews in Congress, Lieberman is viewed far more unfavorably than Barack Obama, 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.
