Poll: Jewish Israelis prefer Romney to Obama 57-22

JPost diplomatic correspondent Herb Keinon tweets that Jewish Israelis prefer Mitt Romney to Barack Hussein Obama by a 57-22 margin according to an Israeli Democratic Institute/Tel Aviv University poll (about as Leftist a pollster as you can get). 'Israeli Arabs,' on the other hand, prefer Obama to Romney by 45-15.

It's important to point out here that there are far more Israeli Jewish voters who are US citizens than 'Israeli Arabs,' and that most Israeli Jewish voters who are US citizens are immigrants to Israel - a demographic that is overwhelmingly Orthodox religiously (I've heard estimates as high as 90%), and therefore far more likely to be conservative politically (i.e. Romney voters).

Keinon also tweets from the same poll that most Israeli Jews (53%) do not blame Prime Minister Netanyahu for the lack of negotiations with the 'Palestinians' - saying that there was no opportunity - while 59% of 'Israeli Arabs' claim there was an opportunity.

The 22% is probably some combination of Green Start Up Rio+20 people, who have benefitted enormously from ObamaDollars, and the Left. Amazing that it is only 22%, eh? That is actually quite a relief, except, just as in the U.S., that group can drag down multiple countries into poverty, cold, dark, and hungry...
