Public Opinion Survey (according to intended party alignments) – January 2019

Below are the results of a polling survey sponsored by the Geneva Initiative and carried out by the I-Panels company under professional external supervision. 630 participants (510 Jews and 120 Arabs) composed a representative sample of the adult population in Israel. The poll was carried out in late January, with a margin of error of +/- 3.9%. The categories examined are limited to the three parties whose support is significant enough that their sample size will have scientific statistical value.

1. When voting in the upcoming elections, how important to you are the positions of the parties regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?
