John McCain isn’t the favorite among Jewish voters, but he is the most popular Republican presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan. Religious Jews, according to a new Gallup poll, are evenly divided between McCain and Democrat Barack Obama, though Obama has a huge advantage among Jews who considers themselves not religious (about 60 percent of American Jewry).

Is this further evidence of the continuing rise of Republican Jews or an anomaly sparked by all the fear that Obama would be bad news for Israel, the sacred cow for religious Jewish voters?
