Likud Tops Poll Again, Labor and Lapid Chip Away at Kadima

Israeli election workers count remaining ballots from soldiers and absentees at the Knesset in Jerusalem

Although elections are scheduled for October 2013, most of the parties’ leaders are already set. The leaders of Likud, Labor, Yisrael Beitenu (pending Liberman’s legal fate), Shas, Meretz, Independence, and Lapid’s new party are known, leading to speculation that most parties are anticipating early elections. The last of the current round of primaries is Kadima’s leadership next month. Dahaf asked 500 people based on the two main Kadima options who they would vote for and the results were not so disparate. Livni’s 13 seats give her a three-seat advantage over Mofaz. The difference between Livni and Mofaz from the nationalist camp point of view is 60 seats vs 61 seats. Yair Lapid’s new party consistently takes away support from a slumping Kadima and does not take away significant support from the nationalist camp. Meanwhile more bad news for Jewish Home who finishes another poll flirting with the threshold.

If elections were held today who would you vote for?

In this particular case, the issue was whether the Arkansas prison system could prohibit, for security reasons, a devout Muslim’s maintaining a beard of a certain length as a matter of religious practice.

While we recognize the Republican Jewish Coalition is hardly a non-partisan outfit, a snippet from a statement the group released is worthy of note:

For Lapid to successfully challenge Netanyahu, he will need to find the right time for a strategic exit from the government.

The right of center parties continue to maintain their lead, albeit by a slightly smaller margin in eight polls released December 9-15.

Knesset Jeremy Weekly Average #8 (week of Nov 25-Dec 1) of 7 polls (Channel 10, Globes, Knesset Channel, Channel 2, Yisrael Hayom, Yediot Ahronont, Channel 1).

The average of 2 polls published last week, Channel 2 and Jerusalem Post. The Post poll was conducted November 12-13 and the Channel 2 poll was published November 14.

This week’s average shows Likud Beitenu and Labor position similar to last week. Shas gains and takes the third position while Lapid’s Yesh Atid drops and falls into the fourth position. Hadash passes Meretz, while Kadima and Independence pick up gains. Am Shalem is also picking up steam. The right block gains ground this week with the help of Shas and Am Shalem’s gains.
