Yesh Atitd is a here today gone tommorow party, even Kadima won an election with 29 seats in 2006 on an election ( on a Sharon sympathy vote ), in 2009 they were out of office and in 2013 those 29 seats from 2006 had dropped to just 2 seats. If a party like Kadima can go from party of government - virtual extinction in just 7 years how long does Lapid have? Yesh Atid was built around 1 man not a policy, already less than 1 year since the election Lapid has dropped in the polls from 19 seats - 12-13 if elections were held now. Yesh Atid will probably get between of 10-15 seats next election but after that the Lapid appeal will have worn off and election after that it will be a tiny fringe party, he might try merging with another party but eventually Lapids ego will force him to quit politics rather than be leading a fringe party. Likud is a mainstream party, Sharon believed in something other than himself. Lapid probably has 10 years tops before he quits politics so he is certainly no successor to Sharon.
