Within the last hour, the first exit poll of 817 Americans in Israel, who attended U.S. election voting events in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv on Tuesdayevening to vote by absentee ballot, has been released. A startling 76 percent of those polled said that they had voted for John McCain. This contrasts sharply with pre-election polls of American Jews in the U.S., which indicate a strong preference for Obama. The exit poll findings of American voters in Israel are all the more surprising because less than one in four were registered Republicans, and 46% of registered Democrats living in Israel said they had crossed party lines to vote McCain. By contrast, the Republican crossover to Obama wasminimal - just 2%. The votes are significant as almost half of the 42,000 registered U.S.voters living in Israel come from key swing states including Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.In the 2000 and 2004 elections, Israel had the third-largest group of American voters abroad, after Canada and Britain.

The exit poll was commissioned by Votefromisrael.org, an independent,non-partisan organization dedicated to promoting voter registration and participation amongst American citizens living in Israel.

SARKOZY: OBAMA'S STANCE ON IRAN IS "UTTERLY IMMATURE"

More than half of the respondents listed foreign policy (including Israel and Iran policy) as the most important factor influencing their vote.Separately, in a poll for the country's largest newspaper, Yediot Ahronot, most Israelis in general (not just Americans living in Israel) said they would prefer McCain because they are concerned about the anti-Israeli positions of many of the people Barack Obama has appointed to advise him onforeign policy, and because - in the words of French President Nicolas Sarkozy as quoted in Tuesday's Ha'aretz newspaper - Obama's stance on Iranis "utterly immature" and comprised of "formulations empty of all content." In most countries, according to opinion polls, if the local populations had a vote in next week's American elections, they would choose Obama over McCain. Among the exceptions (where McCain would win) are Israel, Iraq, Georgia and the Philippines (all countries that have had to cope with terrorism).

  3. Just hope the American Jews in the USA feel the same way. I really think Obama would be a VERY big mistake for President. His lack of support for Israel is just one of many reasons not to vote for him.

  4. I am very angry with my Jewish friends who support Obama - so if this poll is true and is a microcosm of what is to come.

    AMEN.

  7. A reminder to new commenters to Radarsite. If it seems that I am deleting comments here that are extolling the virtues of Obama, and publishing those that see him as one of the greatest threats America has ever faced, then you are beginning to understand the mission of Radarsite.

    Once again, this is not an open forum to debate the relative merits of liberalism vs. conservatism, but rather a website devoted to the defeat of liberalism in general and Obama in particular. - rg

  8. I only wish that American Jews would realize, as their sisters and brothers living in Israel know and understand, that an Obama presidency will jeopardize the future of Israel.

  11. Mr. Gardner
    As a responsible Jew, I look forward to 8 years of Obama. Since you deign to post only those comments which pattern your own twisted bias, I will leave and not return. Mission accomplished.

  13. When you are on the front lines in the War on Terror, you see things differently than here in the States. American Jews (under the age of 35) have not felt the sting of anti-Semitism that their parents and grandparents did. They have no concern for Israel (it is an embarrassment to them) and only care about the "downtrodden" of the world. They are the Moonbats that keep liberals in power.

    Have I told you how refreshing you are in this world of political correctness run amuck? No, well, I am, and your frankness I find quite humourous as well.
