When they visited the region this past summer, Obama went to Ramallah, McCain didn’t and yet, according to a recent poll, McCain is ahead of Obama in the West bank and Gaza.
One-in-three residents of the West Bank and Gaza Strip would like Republican John McCain to win the 2008 United States presidential election, according to a poll by the Palestinian Center for Public Opinion. 33.5 per cent of respondents favour McCain, while 27.7 per cent support Democratic nominee Barack Obama.
The respondents were asked “Which United States presidential candidate do you support?” In face-to-face interviews with 1,020 Palestinian adults in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, conducted from Sept. 1 to Sept. 10, 2008, 30.4% answered “Neither of them.”
