Among Israelis, Romney Appears The Favorite

<snip>

"Israelis view the American presidential election much the way they tend to view most issues: What does it mean for Israel?

And by a wide margin, Israelis seem to believe that Republican candidate Mitt Romney would be more attentive to Israel's interests than President Obama.

The Peace Index Poll, commissioned by Tel Aviv University and the Israel Democracy Institute, found that Romney was favored 2-to-1 by Israelis back in August.

Such pro-Romney sentiment is rare outside the U.S. A recent BBC poll of 21 countries found Obama favored in 20, with Romney taking only Pakistan.

Israel was not included in that survey, though, and Israelis are long used to be being a prominent if not the dominant foreign policy topic in U.S. presidential campaigns."

1. We should remind them about John Sununu --

one of Romney's top advisers was the only US governor who agreed with "Zionism is racism."

3. Why is Romney so popular in Pakistan?

Pakistan and Israel are fairly dissimilar outliers here.
