Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu dismissed polls showing the Likud losing ground to the Namina party and attacked Yamina chairman Naftali Bennett for supporting a vote of no confidence against the government last week.

“I’m not worried about the polls. I am never successful in polls, only in elections,” Netanyahu told Channel 20 News.

Attacking Bennett, Netanyahu said: “Let him decide if he’s right wing or not right wing. I think it astounded many people [that he voted for the no confidence motion]. It astounded me.”

“I can understand voting in favor of dispersing the Knesset, but voting for Yair Lapid as prime minister?” he asked.

Netanyahu's remarks follow the publication of a poll by Channel 13 showing that if elections were held today, the Yamina party would finish second with 24 seats while the Likud party would fall to 27 seats.
