For the Americans living in Israel and see the conflict between that nation and Iran — they want Romney. Telling sign that Romney will be the candidate to keep us safe from a nuclear Iran — not Obama.
Eighty-five percent of American voters in Israel cast their ballots for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, according to an exit poll released on Thursday by the get-out-the-vote organization iVoteIsrael. The results of the poll prompted further questions about the group, which has already come under suspicion over its alleged ties to conservative backers.
Hillel Schenker, chairman of Democrats Abroad Israel, dismissed the poll as unscientific. “All they’re doing is providing information about the people they polled at their polling stations, in places where there are predominantly Orthodox and right-wing Jews,” he said.
Schenker said that “no one knows” how Americans in Israel actually voted because there were no reliable polls and states do not track absentee ballots by country.
But he argued that demographics and geography were strong predictors. Voters who live in major cities like Tel Aviv, Haifa and Be’er Sheva or on kibbutzim likely voted for President Barack Obama, he said, while those living on settlements and studying in religious schools in Beit Shemesh, Bnei Brak and Jerusalem likely voted for Romney.
