Israeli Jews favour Romney 3:1

Poll reported by Jpost

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.

The polling figures stand in stark contrast to polls taken of American Jews, which show they prefer Obama by a similarly wide margin. An American Jewish Committee poll at the end of September showed US Jews favoring Obama over Romney 63%-27%.

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.

A similar Peace Index poll in July found that Israelis felt that Romney “assigned more importance to defending Israel’s national interest” than Obama by a 2:1 ratio: 40% for Romney to 19% for Obama.

    This is off-topic, but that huge storm is heading Northeast —so I am concerned about our friends, Jake, David, and others who live in that region.
    I hope that they are all seeking safety as this storm moves through. It looks as if it is going to be extremely dangerous.

    Ema yes it does! Our newspaper today was full of pictures of grocery stores in NYC that don’t have a single item of food left on their shelves. People are commenting here that it looks like preparations right before a war. Very scary.

    I may be wrong but i think McCain was favored by the same ratio. However there is a difference,the Jewish people here in the US dont have bombs and rockets being fired into their homes on a daily basis. I have wondered why Jewish people vote for the dhimmicrats when fdr refused to admit Jews from germany @ the beginning of ww2. Plus so many Jewish politicians here are dhimmicrats. The only one with any guts is Lieberman. The rest are pure Judenrats in my opinion. Even bloomberg is the pocket of the islamist. He is getting even richer from those deals. Of course in a sharia state his head would be lobbed off by the faithful as well. I read @ American Thinker that obama has only 50 plus percent of the Jewish vote. That was this morning in an article called:obama running out of steam or something like that. Im worried about the east coast too. Prayers are always helpful.
