Interesting article - but there is one big piece missing

Reader comment on item: Democrats, Republicans, and Israel

There have been many sloppy numbers published about the relative numbers of Jews and Muslims in the U.S. but I don't think I've ever seen anything approaching precision as to the relative number of Jewish and Muslim registered voters in the U.S.

I don't personally think that foreign policy vis a vis Israel is going to be a big issue in this upcoming election given the brewing firestorm over the bipartisan conspiracy to keep the borders open and the growing concensus that its getting to be time to wish a pox on all their houses in Iraq. If, however, the various issues around Israel are going to be significant there is no way to judge the potential impact without some sense of how many potential votes on each side of the issue the politicians will be chasing, and further how rapidly (if at all) the relative size of the two voter populations is changing.
