A series of public-opinion polls broadcast Monday found a massive drop in support for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The surveys, conducted by Shiluv Millward Brown and published on Channel 2, showed that Netanyahu’s approval rating dropped from 82 percent to 38% in the past month, and by 17% in the past four days alone.
The size of the surveyed population, or the questions asked, were not detailed in the Channel 2 segment, and the statistics were not immediately available on the website of Shiluv Millward Brown.
Concerning the impending beginning of the school year, 63% of those polled voiced opposition to the opening of schools in southern Israel. Sixty-eight percent also said the government’s treatment of the south has been unsatisfactory.
