A study commissioned by the Maariv newspaper found 49 percent of respondents said Israel should have continued its operation of air strikes, while 31 percent agreed with the truce.
The same poll showed support for the Likud Party slipping by 6 percentage points over the past month. However, Likud was still leading the opposition Labor Party and remains on track to form a new coalition with ultra-nationalist and Jewish Orthodox groups.
Yesterday’s Likud primary was to determine the party list to be put to voters on Jan. 22. Analysts are watching to see if the party tilts further to the right in response to public disaffection over the truce.
