Poll: Majority of Israelis Prefer Romney Over Obama

by Katrina Trinko

President Obama may be winning the Jewish vote in the United States, but in Israel, Mitt Romney is the favorite. The Jerusalem Post reports:

Israeli Jews prefer Republican candidate Mitt Romney over US President Barack Obama by an almost 3:1 margin, according to a “Peace Index” poll conducted by the Israel Democracy Institute and Tel Aviv University that was released Sunday.

. . .

Asked “in terms of Israeli interests, who would be preferable to win the elections next month in the US,”  57.2% of Israeli Jews said Romney, while only 21.5% said Obama.

Among Israeli Arabs, the numbers were reversed, with 45% opting for Obama, and 15% for Romney.
