    Trump wins his first state-Israel

    Donald Trump may be trailing in key battlegrounds like Pennsylvania and Virginia, but there’s another state that offers better news: the state of Israel.

    "According to a survey of 1,140 U.S. citizens living in Israel, whom have mailed in absentee ballots, Trump is ahead of Hillary Clinton by 49 percent to 44 percent. But just like in the U.S., Trump has a problem with the base in Israel, said Mitchell Barak, a consultant in Israel who served as a pollster on the survey, which was conducted in conjunction with the nonpartisan group iVote Israel."

    Typically among this cohort — American Jews living in Israel, many of whom tend to be more religious — the Republican nominee captures around 75 percent of the vote, he said, noting that was the case for John McCain and Mitt Romney. Often those Americans who choose to move to Israel value a muscular U.S. foreign policy and an aggressive approach to combating terrorism, issues that recent Republican nominees have made a particular point to prioritize.


    Interesting, Trump came nowhere near what McCain or Romney did in 2008 or 2012.

    Ironic, since Israel would likely be the first state to get the shaft by a President DJ.

    True, but it really wasn't terribly positive since both Romney and McCain got well over 75%. Trump is way below their levels.

    They should still be ashamed of themselves.

    OTOH, we're talking about people who elected Netanyahu...several times.

    Didn't Netanyahu also run on a "law and order" platform?

    Pretty much. He's famously paranoid, too. At the same time, he's about 24 billion times more intelligent than Trump.

    So, there's that.
