They won’t be voting in the U.S. election, but the attitudes of Israeli Jews leading up to Nov. 6 point strongly in favor of one candidate. The same holds true for Israeli Arabs.

The October 2012 “Peace Index” poll conducted from Oct. 22-24 by the Israel Democracy Institute and Tel Aviv University found that Israeli Jews prefer challenger Mitt Romney over incumbent Barack Obama by a margin of 35 percentage points (57-22), while Israeli Arabs support Obama by 30 points (45-15).
