Poll: Plurality of Israelis (including Arabs) oppose a 'two-state solution', Jewish Home up to 18 mandates

A new poll by Geocartography (link in Hebrew) shows that 45% of Israelis oppose the 'two-state solution,' while 40% favor it. The poll includes 'Israeli Arabs,' who make up about 20% of the population. 14% did not answer.

Meanwhile, Naftali Bennett's Jewish Home party - which is to the Right of the Likud - continues to surge and has now reached 18 mandates (link in Hebrew). Likud-Beiteinu goes to 35 mandates (compared to 42 in the current Knesset), Labor goes to 18 mandates, Shas weakens to 8 mandates, Yair Lapid weakens to 5 mandates.

Among the other parties, HaBdicha (Tzipi Livni party) gets 6 mandates, United Torah Judaism strengthens to 7, and Meretz strengthens to 7 (they have only 3 in the current Knesset). Otzma l'Yisrael (Eldad and Ben Ari - considered 'far Right') strengthens to 6.

Kadima - the party without principles founded by Ariel Sharon, Ehud K. Olmert and Tzipi Livni - would not pass the 2-seat threshold to get into the Knesset.

Three Arab parties would divide the remaining 11 Knesset seats.

Almost nothing could make me happier than seeing a Right wing coalition in the next Knesset, with Kadima in the dustbin of history, and United Torah Judaism getting more seats than Tzipi Livni.
