Senator Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) is the first Jewish GOP Presidential contender. So how's he doing with fellow Jews? Don't ask. Specter trails Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole (R-Kan.) among Jewish Republicans 49% to 10%, according to a May 2-5 poll conducted for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. The same survey shows Jewish voters favoring President Clinton over Dole by 3 to 1--even wider than Clinton's 1992 margin over George Bush.
