June 23, 2016 00:27

Israelis are nearly equally divided on the question of who would be a better president of the United States for Israel, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, according to a poll taken for Channel 2 that was broadcast Wednesday.
When asked who would be better for Israel, 37 percent said Trump and 36% Clinton. Asked who was more fit to be president for the US, 47% said Clinton and 31% Trump. 
The poll asked respondents who they would vote for if they were American citizens. Forty-two percent said Clinton and 35% Trump.
In the most conclusive answer in the survey, 57% said Clinton was more likely to pressure Israel to make concessions to the Palestinians and only 13% said Trump.
Following extended conflicts between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Democratic presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, 43% of respondents said he would get along better with the presumptive Republican nominee, Trump. Thirty-four percent said he would get along better with Clinton, the presumptive nominee of the Democratic party.
