For Jewish Voters, 2008 Race is Challenging

By Steven Windmueller

Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle, October 8, 2008

The author discusses the factors that may affect how American Jews approach the 2008 presidential election: a possible recession at home, an unpopular war abroad, and unease about the possible demise of America's economic and political standing in the world. Also at play is the emergence of two camps, or what the author terms Red State Jews and Blue State Jews. The author examines how American Jews would view McCain and Obama presidencies and which of their respective values correspond with the concerns and interests of the American Jewish community.
