‘Jewish’ Bachmann is costing Romney

Funny, she doesn’t look Jewish.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is facing a new challenge: He’s having trouble raising money from some Jewish donors who mistakenly believe one of his opponents, Michele Bachmann, is Jewish.

Some Jewish donors are telling fund-raisers for Romney, a Mormon, that while they like him, they’d rather open their wallets for the “Jewish candidate,” who they don’t realize is actually a Lutheran, The Post has learned.

“It’s a real problem,” one Romney fund-raiser said. “We’re working very hard in the Jewish community because of Obama’s Israel problem. This was surprising.”


Now, with this latest hiccup among Jewish donors, some in Romney’s camp have been wondering whether Bachmann and her allies are pushing the “Jewish” rumor to help their own fund-raising, sources said.

She has enjoyed strong popularity among Jewish voters and often talks about her stay on a kibbutz during the summer of 1974, when she was a teenager.

Maybe Mitt should show them his circumcision scar.

    Obama approval in Gallup weekly average still at term-low 40%

    Obama faces more problems in the demographics. Gallup compares the numbers from the beginning of summer, when Obama was still coming off of the bump he received from the mission that killed Osama bin Laden, and the change has been precipitous. He’s lost 10 points overall on job approval, twelve points with Hispanic voters, sixteen points with post-graduate college-educated voters, sixteen points among the highest income earners, and twelve points among self-described moderates. It’s a summer-long meltdown.

    From last week, the declines have been smaller but intriguing. Despite his Midwestern jobs bus tour, Obama lost three points in the region. His best regional approval comes from the East, but it’s only 43%, and he’s down to 35% in the South. Only 46% of 18-29YO voters approve of his job performance — and that’s his best age demographic, down three points from the previous week. Among high-voting-rate seniors, Obama has fallen to 35% approval, although that’s slightly up from the previous two weeks.

    If these numbers don’t improve significantly, Obama is looking a Carter-like wipeout in 2012. The question isn’t whether Obama can win; it’s whether Democrats in down-ticket races can avoid getting buried in the landslide, especially in US Senate races.

    Somewhere, a fat lady is singing.

    Lutherans are obviously more Jewish than Mormons. LOL.

    The bigger story behind that, to me, is that maybe Jewish donors are feeling nervous about BO’s Israel policies after all.

    Hot Air:

    Plenty of people — Ed Morrissey and Mollie Hemingway among them — have neatly dissected New York Times Executive Editor Bill Keller’s perfect storm of ignorance and bias when it comes to the religious beliefs of those running for the GOP presidential nominee. Keller identified Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum as “all affiliated with fervid subsets of evangelical Christianity,” when Santorum is Catholic, Bachmann is Lutheran, and Perry is a Methodist.

    Top stylists from New York to Hollywood told me their liberal clients are guiltily requesting the Bachmann Look.

    “A lot of clients have asked for Sarah Palin hair in the past four years, and now, it’s Bachmann,” says Andi Scarbrough of Byu-ty Hair Therapy in L.A. “Politicians are the new celebrities, because they’re real. They didn’t just spring up out of the red carpet.”

    However, she admits, “I have women who come in with photos with the face cut out sometimes.”

    “She has great coppery color that warms her up a little bit,” said Angelo David at his E. 43rdSt. salon, who confirmed a spike in copycat requests for the candidate’s look. “Not everybody wants to look like Kim Kardashian.”

    Bachmann’s style “is safe, but not soccer mom. It’s sexy,” said Alma Qeraxhiu at her AlmaG Salon and Spa on E. 21st. St.

    “I have found it a little bit amazing how many women have been coming in asking for her hair style, even though they don’t agree with her politics.”

    The author goes for a trifecta – slamming Michele, Sarah AND Hillary all in one article.

    HAHAHA!!! I know nothing about this mayor, but good for him on this:

    Yesterday I wrote about the decision by the Marathon County Labor Council to ban Republicans from the Wausau, Wisconsin parade on Labor Day. The mayor of Wausau has responded with an ultimatum to the union board — reimburse the city for all costs or reinvite the Republicans.

    Good. If it is not a public event open to all (as it always was in years past), why should the city be paying for it? You want a “private” event, you pick up the tab.
