The majority of the Israeli public is dissatisfied with the manner in which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is carrying out his duties the Israel Democracy Institute’s monthly peace index has found.
The new polling data comes against a background of ongoing difficulties for Netanyahu with the criminal investigations into him as well as the recent State Comptroller’s report into the handling of the 2014 Gaza war which leveled serious criticism at the prime minister and others for their management of the conflict.
According to the survey, 53 percent of the general public thinks Netanyahu is not functioning well, compared to 43% who think he is. Among the Jewish public, the picture is largely the same with 52% believing he is not doing a good job.
