Lapid’s Popularity Collapses in New Poll

JewishPress Logo

A new Knesset Channel shows Yesh Atid party leader Yair Lapid in a severe meltdown in popularity, removing any doubts of the political law of gravity that the higher and faster a newbie’s star rises, the quicker it falls.

An overwhelming 78 percent of the respondents said they do not trust Lapid as Finance Minister, Globes reported. An even larger majority – 82 percent –ruled him out as worthy to replace Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Only 43 percent of the respondents said they would cast their ballots again for Lapid, and 54 percent said he has not kept his promises. If elections were held today, Yesh Atid would drop from 19 to 13 seats, and Likud-Beiteinu would more or less remain at its current strength. Jewish Home, led by Naftali Bennet, would soar from 12 to 16, and the other parties would stage marginal gains or losses.

  1. Rob Conwell says:

    But did the respondents vote for Yesh Atid in the first place? And what were the demographics of the survey respondents? If the survey was primarily from Ultra Orthodox or Labour respondents, then these results are skewed. I'm of the opinion that these types of surveys are worth twopence in the real world and are often designed to support a predetermined result.
