If the election between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama were held in Israel, Romney would win by a wide margin according to a new poll.

A new poll released by The Times of Israel on Thursday showed that 45 percent of Israelis would vote for Romney, compared to 29 percent for the president. Twenty-six percent of Israelis polled didn’t have a preference.

During his time as President, Obama has never visited Israel.

Meanwhile, these are the people who want Obama to win next week:

A television ad from Mitt Romney's campaign airing in Miami pegs President Barack Obama to Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro, notorious dictators widely reviled among Cuban Americans.

The ad spotlights endorsements from Chavez and Raul Castro's daughter Mariela, who both said they would vote for Obama if they could. According to ad-tracker CMAG, the spot aired Tuesday.

Chavez announced at the beginning of October that if he could vote in the U.S. election it would be for Obama. The leftist leader and strong man, who has used strong anti-United States language in his political rallies and official speeches, told state-owned VTV, "In the point of view of his politics, if I were voting, I would vote for Obama and I believe that if Obama was from Caracas, he would vote for Chavez, I am positive."

Two visions, one way forward.
