    The Jewish demographics in New York state are changing. Can't speak for Florida, but about 9% of New York State residents are Jews. The next generations come from fewer American secular Jewish families, but more from the Orthodox families and some from the immigrant Russian families. Both of these groups are less likely to vote Democratic than their American secular Jewish counterparts. And Israel is one of the main issues for them. What's been the case in the elections of 2010 was that a safe NY State Senate Democratic district went Republican. And a Democrat who just won in another Russian Jewish district said he will caucus with Republicans. I'm not sure what will be the balance with the New York's increasing Latino population, but it seems to me like your predictions are too early. Whatever Obama will do, he has to be careful about the effects of his actions. (And potentially losing New York State is a big thing.)
