A forty-four percent plurality of Israelis want former US President Donald Trump to win November’s election, compared to 30% who would prefer current leader Joe Biden to secure a second term, according to a Channel 12 poll published on Tuesday evening.

Twenty-six percent of respondents said they did not know whom they wanted elected in America’s presidential race.

Breaking the figures down, 72% of respondents who voted for parties in Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s governing coalition said they preferred Trump, while 8% chose Biden.

By contrast, 55% of respondents who cast a ballot for parties in the Israeli opposition preferred Biden, compared to 23% for Trump.

Trump and Biden clinched the Republican and Democratic presidential nominations, respectively, in primaries on Tuesday, setting up a rematch of the 2020 election.
