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.

UPDATE 5:46 PM

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

UPDATE 5:48 PM

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

UPDATE 6:11 PM

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."

UPDATE 6:46 PM

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... :(
