Ben Smith Errs

Writing in his Politico column, Ben Smith reviews Mike Huckabee's Israel positions and especially his pro-Yesha stance.

However, he does make an error in writing

"Huckabee isn’t getting any votes in Israel"

Both Democrats and Republicans have "Abroad" organizations in the country.

I would guess there are tens of thousands of American voters in Israel, and in Judea and Samaria alone approximately 10,000. And if we include those who are sympathetic to the rights of Jews in their historic homeland in the rest of Israel and, importantly, in America, both Jewish and non-Jewish, - those who would make that issue an agenda item for their vote - I would say there are millions.

So, who knows how many votes Huckabee mighty garner here.
