Who is most suited to be Prime Minister?

35% Netanyahu, 11% Bennett, 11% Liberman, 9% Ashkenazi, 9% Herzog, 19% none.

Knesset Jeremy Analysis: If Ashkenazi enters politics it has a one to two seat change on the blocs. Regardless the Anti-Netanyahu alliance of Yesh Atid-Zionist Union-Meretz-Joint List fails to get close to forming a bloc large enough to block Netanyahu in a stage 2 situation by the President residence.

In the unlikely scenario of a mega-Lapid-Kahlon-Ashkenazi-party, the party would still fall short of a coalition even after signing coalition agreements with Zionist Union, Meretz and Yisrael Beitenu. The likelihood of the 50-seat-bloc of Likud and the religious parties joining a coalition with Lapid would be extremely low and the Arab parties are against joining any Zionist government.

Panels conducted a poll that was broadcast by the Knesset Channel on Jan 11 2016.

What grade do you give Yesh Atid Chairman Yair Lapid?

30% Average, 27% Bad, 26% Good, 10% Very Good, 7% Don’t know

Does the fact that Lapid has recruited himself to be Israel’s public diplomacy agent overseas added to his value?

52% Yes, 39% No, 9% Don’t Know

How does Lapid’s decision to get closer to the Haredim (ultra-orthodox) change the chances you will vote for him?

51% No change, 36% Lower chance I vote for him, 10% Higher chance I vote for him, 3% Don’t know

If the elections were conducted today – would you consider voting for Yesh Atid led by Lapid?

61% No, 25% Yes, 14% Don’t Know

Of the following leaders, which one is most suited to serve as Prime Minister?

24% Benjamin Netanyahu, 16% Yair Lapid, 11% Naftali Bennett, 10% Issac Herzog, 7% Avigdor Liberman, 4% Moshe Kahlon, 7% Don’t Know, 21% None of the Above
