Egyptian poll: Romney 73, Obama 25
Hot Air ^ | MAY 21, 2012 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Needless to say, as Brookings notes, this is emphatically an anti-Obama vote rather than a pro-Romney one. If even one percent of Egyptian voters are capable of picking Romney out of a line-up, I’d be surprised.

Still, an amusing result. Because I’ll bet you that a huge chunk of those who “prefer” Mitt here do so on the assumption that he’ll be more hostile to Israel than Obama is. Lots of rude awakenings in Cairo happening these days.

Left-handed resistance.

The fall of Mubarak and the rise of the MB in Egypt was condoned, even instigated by Obama. Since dissent against the current regime will probably get you shot, dissing Obama is a safe alternative. IMHO this poll is more about conditions in Egypt than elections in the US.

Polling the inmates of a mental institution (aka The Arab World) does not produce meaningful results.

The same can be said for the results from large cities in America.
