I posted earlier how Bibi allies have done things to stop this guy. Once he got 20th spot and some Bibi ally complained and he was dropped to 36th..? How does that happen?
At what point would his 23% of Likud voters simply bolt?
They did it in the past and the Likud lost votes in 2009.
They can’t do it this year. There are not that many leftists in Israel’s Jewish electorate and Meretz may be well be shut out of the Knesset next year.
Every other party is trying to appeal to the middle, which is the swing Israeli voter. The Right collectively has around 30% of the vote, the Left has about 16% and the rest is centrist.
