Frustrated Jewish Democrat?

There’s a study for that

Buzzfeed has a copy of an email being circulated by the Republican Jewish Coalition with the subject line: “Jews who voted for Obama in 2008, but might not in 2012… A study!”

The gist of the email:

I heard from you directly, or through the grapevine, that you:

1) Are Jewish
2) Voted for President Obama in 2008
3) Might not vote for President Obama again in 2012.

If all three of these statements are true, are you willing to speak on the phone about your changing sentiment toward the President? The interviews will be used for informational purposes only — we will not publish your name anywhere or make the contents of your interview public. The study is being conducted by my friends at the Republican Jewish Coalition to better understand the frustrations some Jewish voters are experiencing with President Obama.

Will you be participating?
