Leftists Outnumbered Two to One

Ad Feedback

CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - Results of a Rafi Smith Institute poll released Wednesday showed that Israelis identifying with the right outnumbered their leftist counterparts two to one.

The telephone survey, which polled 1,700 residents who voted in Tuesday's general elections, has a 2.4 percent margin of error.

Sixty-six percent of those surveyed identified themselves somewhere between center and right, compared with 19 percent who called themselves left or center-left.

Fifteen percent wouldn't label themselves one way or another.

"We are in a different time and the Israeli public has turned rightward, as expressed in this election," pollster Rafi Smith said.

Smith said 20 percent of the nation's voters didn't make a decision until Election Day, and 9 percent decided en route to the polls.

While 75 percent of Kadima voters identified themselves as center to center-left, 50 percent of Likud voters called themselves right-wing, with 25 percent saying they were center-right and 15 percent they were center.

Not unexpectedly, the poll showed that women voters outnumbered men for Kadima, while men outnumbered women for Likud.
