Israeli soldiers prefer Obama over McCain, 55 to 35 percent
Buried in this Politico story about Israelis preferring McCain to Obama,
Interestingly, though, the poll found Israeli soldiers preferred Obama over McCain, 55 to 35 percent. That may be partly a function of age, since the poll found 18- to 24-year olds preferred Obama 49-percent to 30 percent.

A new poll finds 38 percent of Israelis still would rather see Obamas Republican rival John McCain elected U.S. president, compared to 31 percent for Obama, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. Thats slightly narrower than the 9-point edge held by McCain in a poll conducted in late June.

The new poll surveyed 499 Jewish Israeli respondents in Hebrew by phone on July 30 and 31.

That was one week after Obamas whirlwind overseas tour swept through Israel, bringing saturation Israeli media coverage of his meetings with top politicians, his visit to the Kotel one of the most important Jewish religious sites and, perhaps most significantly, his outlining a more hawkish stance on Irans nuclear ambitions.


........


Overall, 31 percent of respondents had no opinion or refused to answer a high number given the intense Israeli media coverage of the U.S. presidential race.
