Israeli College Students Would Take Romney Over Obama
In contrast to college students in the U.S., college students in Israel prefer to see Mitt Romney as President of the United States over incumbent Barack H. Obama – by a wide margin. According to the poll, 64% of Israeli college and university students want Romney to win Tuesday's election.
Only 36% said they believed Obama would make a better choice as president.
The poll was conducted by Ariel University, and used a scientifically chosen sample of students in colleges and universities throughout the country.
The poll of Israeli students contrasted sharply with a poll of American college students, released this week. The poll of 2,100 students said that 56.3% of female college students favored Obama, compared to 21.4 percent of who favored Romney. Among men, 52% said they wanted Obama to win, 26.2% said they preferred Romney.
An informal poll of residents of Egypt and Jordan by CNN found that most people in those countries wanted to see Obama win. In a segment broadcast on CNN Tuesday, a network reporter, speaking to numerous residents of Cairo, found nearly wall-to-wall support for Obama.
