ext week the major GOP contenders will be speaking to the Republican Jewish Coalition. Democrats in presidential elections have enjoyed an overwhelming advantage with Jewish voters although the gap has been narrowing over the last several elections. Republicans’ strong commitment to Israel and fighting the War on Terror and their determination to stand up to Iran give the GOP candidates an attractive pitch. They also would be wise to speak out against Jimmy Carter’s ongoing hate speech against Israel and make clear that they have no patience with the anti-Semitic conspiracy theories
which enjoy popularity among Leftists on college campuses. Interestingly, the latest Fox poll
also shows that Republicans, to a far greater degree than Democrats, would feel comfortable with a Jewish president.
