American Israelis Pick Romney Over Obama 85-14%
An iVoteIsrael exit poll claims that 80,000 Americans living in Israel cast votes in this year's election, more than double the 2008 turnout, and that 85% voted for Mitt Romney compared to only 14% who cast votes for Barack Obama. According to the report, a significant number come from battleground states like Florida and Ohio where 7,500 and 3,500 votes, respectively, were cast by absentee ballots from Israeli-Americans. The report notes that Bush's winning margin in Florida that gave him the presidency was only 537 votes.
