Israelis still prefer Netanyahu to Lapid in PM race

Channel 1’s poll also features respondents’ answers as to their preferred candidate for prime minister.

Here, Netanyahu is ahead with 24 percent, followed by Lapid’s 17%.

Education Minister Naftali Bennett gets 8%, then opposition head Isaac Herzog and Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman with 7%.

Bringing up the rear are two erstwhile generals, former chief of staff Gabi Ashkenazi with 6%, and Ehud Barak, who has already served as prime minister. He receives a paltry 2%, which doesn’t bode well for his emerging campaign.

Fully 29% of respondents didn’t warm to any of the options.
