The numbers in the next election which this author is presenting seem very contrived. They seem partially if not heavily tainted by the pipe dream of the far left in this country which is that since they think Netanyahu is so obviously a stinky PM that therefore everyone will just magically abandon the right and jump on the leftist bandwagon JUST BECAUSE. I just think that this is wishful thinking. The bulk of the population are willing to here new ideas but they have been sold so many Brooklyn Bridges over the years by the next lefty stepping up promising a whole new Israel that you actually have to have some substance to carry the weight if you want to pull it off. Yair Lapid just doesn't seem to have the goods - maybe his 2 year tzinun period will give him a chance to change that....
