Poll: More Israelis Prefer a Democrat For President

More Israelis prefer one of the three candidates vying for the Democratic Party’s nomination than one of the 14 Republicans candidates, were they able to choose the next U.S. president, a new poll published Monday showed.

According to the poll, commissioned by Panel Politics for The Jerusalem Post, 34 percent of Israelis say they would vote for a generic Democrat for president were they given the right to vote in 2016 while 30 percent would choose the Republican nominee. 36 percent were undecided.

The poll did not ask whom Israelis would prefer seeing elected as President. A poll conducted in the fall of 2012 showed a majority of Israeli Jews (57%) wanted Romney to win the presidential election, while only 21.5% preferred Obama getting elected for a 2nd term.
