It’s a whole new world, and members of the Likud party are starting to look elsewhere for their leadership.
According to a new poll by Panels Politics, 52 percent of Likud voters are hoping that Naftali Bennett will choose to join their party, while 72 percent of Bayit Yehudi is praying he continues to lead them as he has done so far.
Thirty-nine percent of Likud voters agree: they too, hope that Bennett stays with Bayit Yehudi. Nearly half of all other voters also believe he should continue to lead the party.
Surprisingly, 26 percent of Israel’s general voters believe Bennett should join the Likud, and so do 20 percent of those in his own party, Bayit Yehudi.
Bennett is the current Education Minister but is known for his proactive stance on terrorism, security and on behalf of Jews living in Judea, Samaria and Mateh Binyamin.
