Trump Wins Exit Polls Among Israeli Absentee Voting

According to the result of an exit poll taken among absentee voters in Israel, Donald Trump would better serve the interests of the Jewish nation rather than Hillary Clinton as president.  

Trump received 49% of the Israeli-American vote, while Clinton got 44%, according to the poll conducted by get-out-the-vote organization iVoteIsrael and KEEVOON Global Research.

The poll found a split between the two major-party candidates in New York, New Jersey, California, and Maryland. However, the swing state of Florida went to Trump outright.

The total number of votes coming from Israel, 30,000, is lower than the 80,000 who turned out in 2012.

Despite Trump winning among Americans in Israel, more are registered Democrats (33%) than Republicans (27%). Of Trump’s votes in Israel, 25% came from Democrats, and 10% of Clinton’s votes came from Republicans.
