Breaking: US citizens in Israel vote 85% Romney, 14% Obama (UPDATED WITH FULL RESULTS)

I was invited to this press conference, but could not make it because of another commitment.

According to my sources, iVoteIsrael held a press conference today, at which they announced that 85%(!!!!) of the ballots cast by American citizens residing in Israel for the US elections went to Mitt Romney. 85%!!!!!

More information to follow when I have it.


It should be noted that according to official statistics, there are over 163,000 American voters in Israel (and there are actually probably more).


There were 80,000 votes cast from Israel in the US Presidential election.  


I should probably clarify that the poll was based upon an exit sample of 1,572 voters of the 80,000 who voted, with a margin of error of +/- 2.5%

Here's some more info. 

Romney beat Obama by a wide margin in Florida and Ohio, 84.8% to 15.1% in Florida , and 85.8% to 18.1% in Ohio. (I have no idea why the numbers in Ohio add up to more than 100% - I was just given the numbers).

I suspect that the sample sizes in many states other than New York (which statistically has over 40% of the eligible voters) might be too small to be statistically meaningful.

When asked, “What is the most important issue to you in these elections?” 11.2% said jobs and the (US) economy, 2.7% said healthcare, 11.2% said Iran, 0.9% said taxation, 61.3% said Israel-related issues, and 10% said "other."


Here are the full results, which have been uploaded to ScribD.

So of the 163k+ eligible to vote, 80k did? so under 50%? Well, since it is U.S. voting, I guess that might be a bunch of Dem voters who sat out? Where I am, we are hoping enough Dems sit out to cancel out the cheat... :(
