New poll: Most Israelis oppose freeze extension

A new poll shows that most Israelis oppose extending the 'settlement freeze' (via IMRA). This is from the second link.
Telephone poll of a representative sample of adult Israelis (including Arab Israelis) carried out by Dahaf for Channel Two TV on Tuesday 28 September in the middle of a major Jewish holiday (Succoth) when many Israeli were not home and broadcast today:

Should Israel agree to extend the freeze? Yes 39% No 54%
[Dahaf head Mina Tzemach noted that the poll was carried out before news of American "goodies" in return for the extension of the freeze. On the other hand, she did not mention possible problems with the poll as a result of it having been carried out in the middle of a major holiday.].

If elections held today (expressed in Knesset seats)
Current Knesset seats in [brackets].

The most interesting result of the poll's findings is the Labor Party falling to minor party status. Not too surprising. Kadima has not really gained any ground, which isn't a surprise for party which has no real ideology. I don't expect the political landscape in Israel to change much in the future except the Left and the "peace camp" parties will fade into complete irrelevance.
