Every Democrat presidential candidate since Civil Rights has lost the White Vote, but several have won by carrying the Black Vote.
That doesn't appear yet likely to change.
But in the past century, every Democrat President running for re-election--save one--has won by carrying the Jewish Vote. The sole exception was Jimmy Carter in 1980.
By all appearances, Barack Obama will be the second.
UPDATE: He got 69% of the Jewish vote--enough to win re-election.
