Is Hillary an anti-Semite?
By Erin Kuch
Rick Lazio trails behind Hillary Clinton on
most issues. But he believes he can break the First Lady's strong support among Jewish voters by painting her as an anti-Semite. Both candidates are on a quest to win over New York's Jewish voters.
The Jewish population has always had an affect on the polls in New York. According to
news.excite.com, Jews accounted for about 12 percent of the voters in the last New York general election. It is a crucial vote to any state political race in New York, and Clinton is milking it with all she's got. She has to. Possibly because of her travels to the Middle East and her indecisive outlooks on foreign affairs, Lazio has pulled in 8 points behind Hillary 49% to 41% in the New York Times' latest polls. And though Clinton leads Lazio among ethnics, African-Americans and women, Lazio, on the other hand, has the majority of mostly Republican upstaters. "Upstate, not a single undecided voter is going to vote for her," Lazio's senior strategist has said.
