Poll: Economic, Social Issues Top Security Ones for Voters

A poll taken on behalf of the Labor Party, released Tuesday, indicates that Israelis are much more concerned with economic and social issues in the current elections than they are with security issues.

If the poll is correct, it would be the first national election campaign in decades that did not focus on security issues – and provide a boost to Labor, which is focusing its campaign largely on social-economic issues.
