We calculate the cross section and All asymmetry of the diffractive J/$\Psi$ leptoproduction for a simple model of a Pomeron coupling with a proton, which contains the $\gamma^{\alpha}$ term and a spin-dependent part. It is shown that the asymmetry caused by the Pomeron coupling $\propto \gamma^{\alpha}$ does not vanish for nonzero |t|. The sensitivity of the polarized diffractive J/$\Psi$ production to the spin-dependent part of the Pomeron coupling is found to be rather weak. As a result, it is difficult to study the structure of the Pomeron coupling with the proton in future polarized diffractive experiments on the J/$\Psi$ production.
