LBJ played the violin like a master to get that win. He tugged at the heart strings of America over JFKs death and wanting to continue the vision, along with making Goldwater a warmonger of immense scale. The cutesy daisy commercial was his way of going for the throat, and it worked. The result was LBJ Texas politics and a war too.

I assumed that the OP meant people who were raised Jewish. Bill Maher's mother is Jewish but he was raised Catholic, complete with Baptism, First Communion and Confirmation. Similary, Obama's father was Muslim, but it was his mother's atheist family that raised him.
