More Israelis prefer Gantz than Netanyahu as PM, poll finds

If former IDF chief of staff Benny Gantz ran for prime minister, more Israelis would support him than current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to a Chanel 2 poll broadcast Saturday.

The poll, conducted by Dr. Mina Tzemach and Mano Geva, pitted Netanyahu against various candidates for prime minister, and only Gantz surpassed him, with 44 percent choosing him rather than 32% for Netanyahu.

If Gantz were to run as the head of a center-left party, the margin between him and Netanyahu narrows to 4%, with 41% preferring the former chief of staff and 37% choosing Netanyahu.
