Hillary Wins Israel

Hillary Clinton may be losing primaries and caucuses left and right, but she apparently has a small reservoir of support among Democrats living in Israel.

Democrats Abroad has released the results of its “Global Presidential Primary,” and in Israel, Clinton managed to edge out Obama, with 190 votes to his 159.

Unfortunately for Clinton, Israel was more the exception than the rule. In fact, Obama won 65.6% of the 22,755 votes cast worldwide to Clinton’s 32.7%. Indeed, of the countries with at least a dozen people voting, the only other ones where Clinton triumphed over Obama were the Dominican Republic (where she did get a whopping 90.3% of the vote) and the Philippines.

According to Democrats Abroad:

These results determine the allocation of 4.5 delegate votes at the Democratic National Convention. Senator Obama won 2.5 delegate votes, and Senator Clinton 2 delegate votes. A further 2.5 votes will be determined at the Democrats Abroad Global Convention in April. In addition, Democrats Abroad holds 4 superdelegate votes. A total of 22 delegates, each with a half vote, will attend the Convention.

The Democrats Abroad Global Primary was conducted February 5-12, 2008. Balloting took place at voting centers in over 30 countries, by mail and fax, and for the first time, on the Internet through a secure online voting system. Online ballots were cast from 164 countries and territories, from Antarctica to Zambia.
