In an effort to win votes from Florida's Jewish population, Mitt Romney will be taking a trip to Jerusalem. His visit will focus on his relationship with Prime Minister Netanyahu and decreasing the already declining Jewish support for President Obama.
Mitt Romney will soon visit a city that could prove crucial to his election hopesnot Miami or Richmond or Cleveland but Jerusalem. This year more than ever, the Jewish vote is up for grabs, and Barack Obama has no one to blame but himself.
By pressuring Israel for concessions on Jerusalem, urging it to return to the narrow pre-1967 borders, and clashing with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the president has fractured the White House's relationship with American Jews in ways not seen since the Carter administration. President Carter's tilt against Israel cost him heavily in the 1980 presidential election: About 60% of Jews backed either Ronald Reagan or third-party candidate John Anderson. Could history repeat itself?
