Poll: Huge majority of National Religious public supports Chetboun's vote against draft law

Take this with a grain of salt, because online polls tend to be self-selecting. A poll on the National Religious Srugim website shows that 76% of the respondents support MK Yoni Chetboun's defiance of coalition discipline to vote against the law to draft Haredim (link in Hebrew).

According to the poll, 76% believe that Chetboun acted correctly, 10% believe that he was mistaken because it was a good law, 9% believe that he was mistaken because it is forbidden to defy coalition discipline, and 5% agree with Chetboun (for a total of 81% who agree with him!) but believe it is forbidden to defy coalition discipline.

Over the weekend, newspapers contained a full-page advertisement supporting Chetboun, which was signed by Rabbis Shmuel Eliyahu, Nachum Nerya and Elyakim Levanon. According to Rabbi Eliyahu, Chetboun represents a 'huge public' which cannot be silenced.
