1. Clueless as he's by nature, at least he's providing a ladder
for himself to climb down.
Of course all these polls are there to either provide some "excitement" about the elections, but more certain, they form a not-so-sophisticated propaganda tool.
Anyhow: remember the good old days, when our Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball team was No.1 in Europe & Israel?
All the others were insignificant, poor bastards.
Same with Bibi now....
2. Not until next 'poll' that GUARANTEES a win for Benny Blue!
3. Charismatic, idealistic, honest, capable, sincere. We have
Alfredo ,   Raanana   (02.01.19)
been thirsty for such qualities in our leadership. Now we'll have for the "Encore" -- the list and party platform -- to decide. Let's hope that it will be good.
4. Ganttz, the candidate without a platform
Avi Israeli ,   Tel Aviv   (02.01.19)
"Just not Netanyahu" is not a political platform. It's a strategy that failed for the Left in the last elections and it will fail even bigger this time around. Gantz, being the only serious 'non-politician' candidate had the unique opportunity to run on an anti-corruption platform, promising transparency and accountability across all levels of government. Pity he had the wrong advisors, probably the same people who were paid to help elect other failed politicians.
