Israeli election poll: Right would win 71 seats

If elections were held today in Israel, the Right would win 71 seats (as opposed to the current 63), with Kadima and Labor losing an additional eight seats, according to a poll broadcast on Israel Television. The television presenters' comments are interspersed here - note that our media is as Leftist as anyplace else in the world.
Telephone poll of a representative sample of 516 adult Israelis (including Arab Israelis) carried out by Shvakim Panorama for Israel Television Channel One's Friday Night news magazine on 8 July and broadcast on 10 July 2009.

"Meretz [far left Jewish party. CiJ] went up by two seats - good" - Yael Chason.

Pollster: It should be noted that some 12% of those polled didn't say what party they would vote for.

Who would you prefer to be prime minister?
Netanyahu 49% Livni 32% Don't know 19%
Almost 30% of Kadima voters prefer Netanyahu over Livni as prime minister.

"There's a gap between the media and the public. There is media discussion and it might still sink into the public but the media discussion is not correlated to public opinion." - Ayala Chason

Obama is doing everything he can to weaken Netanyahu and his government. Yet like everything else Obama does, it is backfiring.

Funny isn't it.

Israel's leftist media has never given Netanyahu a honeymoon and the elites hate his guts. With all the bad publicity they've given him, the Right's poll numbers should be suffering. Instead the opposite is true. If one was to project Obama's and Netanyahu's approval ratings in a trend line, one would be going down and the other one would be going up.
