The Jewish Press, a New York-based Jewish newspaper that reflects the views of American Orthodox Jews, has heartily endorsed Senator John McCain for President.

I was born in Chicag in 1937. World War II and the Holocaust shaped my thinking. I am grateful to the Jewish Press for endorsing John McCain. I have left a party that I associated with civil rights because it has become uncivil and threatening to Jews. And I am merely a gentile! I don't trust anyone who allies himself with Israel's enemies! I've seen it before. We don't need a perfect candidate as much as we need an honorable American candidate who will not compromise Israel's security. Nancy Dieterle from PA

Haaretz is reporting Jewish voters favor Barack Obama over John McCain by more than 3 to 1, with 74% saying they will vote for Obama over 22% for McCain.

Scott and Anonymous: The HaAretz poll almost certainly reflects a voting pattern that has been commented upon in the past, on this blog and elsewhere--The less religiously observant a Jewish voter is, the more likely that he or she will vote for a liberal Democrat. Conversely, the more religiously observant a Jewish voter is, the more likely that he or she will vote Republican. Because the vast majority of American Jews are not only not religiously observant, but indeed are incredibly uneducated about their own religion, the Democrat Presidential ticket nearly always garners in excess of 70% of the Jewish vote. I am still predicting, however, that Barack Obama will end up with less than 70%.
