Israelis Want Netanyahu Out But See No Better Option

Arutz 7–Most Israelis would like to see Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu replaced after March elections but, paradoxically, he is seen as the most suitable for the job, an opinion poll said last week. The survey conducted by the Dialog Institute and published by Haaretz newspaper, showed that 53 percent of those polled do not want Netanyahu to win a third consecutive term in office, for a total of four. Nevertheless, 34 percent agreed that the incumbent and head of the right-wing Likud Party is the most credible candidate and the most capable to be prime minister.

Coming a distant second, at 17 percent, was left-wing Labor Party head Yitzhak Herzog. The survey also said Likud could end up neck and neck in a race for mandates with the alliance between Labor and centrist party Hatnua. A poll published by Maariv newspaper last week said the Labor-Hatnua alliance could gain 23 seats against 21 for Likud. A total of 505 people were polled by Dialog in the latest survey which has a margin error of 4.2 percentage points.
