Additional Questions:

Who would you like to see lead the country in the future?

24% Prime Minister Netanyahu, 11% Economy Minister Bennett, 9% Former Likud Minister Kachlon, 7% Opposition Leader Herzog, , 5% Justice Minister Livni, 4% Foreign Minister Liberman , 4% Interior Minister Saar, 3% Finance Minister Lapid, 2% Defense Minister Yaalon.

Who is most trustworthy in your eyes?

17% Former Likud Minister Kachlon, 11% Prime Minister Netanyahu, 10% Economy Minister Bennett, 10% Opposition Leader Herzog, 8% Interior Minister Saar, 7% Defense Minister Yaalon, 6% Justice Minister Livni, 4% Foreign Minister Liberman , 3% Finance Minister Lapid, 24% don’t know.

Knesset Jeremy Analysis: As expected, with the agenda moving away from defense and on to domestic politics Kachlon does better. He get 11 seats in this poll, 6 seats in the Smith poll. He is taking from Likud, Labor, Bayit Yehudi, Yisrael Beitenu and Yesh Atid.

So this poll tells us what many Israelis know, they don’t trust Netanyahu but they do support him over any other candidate. It is another poll that reminds us how popular Gidon Saar is and brings us to question why he was not one of the ministers listed on these polls in the past, despite his position as #2 in Likud over the last 5 years.
