Likud not fazed by Channel 2 poll claiming that Yesh Atid is largest political party

Likud officials responded to the results of a Channel 2 News poll, which revealed that the Likud is losing voters to Yesh Atid. “We aren’t worried, the pendulum will swing in our favor thanks to our actions in defense, society, infrastructure and more,” said the Coalition chairman.

After JerusalemOnline (JOL) reported last night (Tuesday) that a Channel 2 News poll revealed that the Likud is losing voters to Yesh Atid, representatives from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s political party tried to convey that they are not fazed by the results. “The poll is the result of the Shabbat construction work crisis and that is behind us [now] after the Supreme Court ruled on the matter,” they said.

“[Experts] already predicted that the party would receive 18 mandates in the last elections and we saw what the outcome was,” continued the Likud officials. “The Likud voters will return when they realize that Lapid is a left-wing politician who heads a left-wing party that will lead concessions and withdrawals that jeopardize Israel’s security.”

“I don’t accept the results of the poll,” said Coalition chairman David Bitan. “In many of the surveys like this one that were conducted last week, the Likud is leading by a large advantage. We aren’t worried, the pendulum will swing in our favor thanks to our actions in defense, society, infrastructure and more. The train issue was also resolved by the Likud in a way that the service to civilians will not be harmed and the public will continue to enjoy public transportation.”

Yesterday evening, JOL reported that according to a Channel 2 News survey, Yesh Atid is the largest political party in Israel.
