Shmuel Rosner (now “housed” at the Jerusalem Post) posts our office’s publication of election returns for some key election precincts with a high concentration of Orthodox Jewish voters.

Shmuel gives his speculation on what the numbers mean; we’d suggest one likely factor that he does not: Obama ran a more effective outreach campaign in the Orthodox Jewish community than John Kerry did – and it had an impact.
