Israelis Favor Romney Over Obama By Wide Margin In Latest Poll [View all]

Israelis prefer Mitt Romney over President Obama by a wide margin, according to the latest polling from the Israel Democracy Institute and Tel Aviv University.

The Republican candidate leads Obama 57 percent to 22 percent, the organizations' Peace Index for October found in its October survey.

The gap is especially marked among self-described right-wingers 70 percent of whom prefer Romney while Obama gets three times more support from Arab Israelis, 45 percent versus 15 percent.

Israeli public opinion stands in stark contrast with the rest of the world, where a clear majority of people prefer Obama over Romney, according to a BBC poll.

That poll of 21,797 people in 21 countries but not Israel found an average of 50 percent of respondents favored Obama versus 9 percent for Romney. The two candidates are equally unpopular in Pakistan.
