I think the best way to explain the lack of turnout is people just couldn't be bothered, at the last general election the voter turnout was only about 60% so the fact the voter turnout at the primaries was low means nothing about Bibi. As for Gingrich it wouldn't even surprise me if Bibi is privately supporting Romney as he probably has a better chance of beating Obama. Bibi might like Gingrich but at the end of the day all he cares about is Obama getting the boot because any Republican will be better for Israel than Obama. You really must be getting desperate for things to write if your predicting the demise of Likud because of the election turnout at their primaries or because it looks like Romney will be the one to be chosen as Republican candidate. You want to hear a real scandal story its all about the head of Meretz who originally said he wouldn't join any coalition that included Shas but when the post of education minister was dangled in front of him then ambition replaced ideology and he joined a coalition with Shas.
