Herzog blames Lapid refusal to form centrist bloc for dip in poll

The center-left has to form a large bloc in order to win an election, opposition leader Isaac Herzog (Zionist Union) said Saturday night, in response to a Jerusalem Post/Maariv Sof Hashavua poll, in which his party’s seats in the Knesset dropped significantly.

“If I lived according to the polls, I would have already been prime minister for a year,” Herzog quipped at a cultural event in Mevasseret Tzion.

The Panels Research poll, taken Wednesday and Thursday, belied hopes in the Zionist Union that Herzog’s controversial “Separation Plan,” entailing unilateral steps in anticipation of an eventual two-state solution, which Herzog has said is not possible in the short term, would woo centrist voters from the Likud and Yesh Atid.
