Likud party activist Moshe Feiglin sought to temper expectations for results in his primary bid against Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Tuesday.

Feiglin, expected to lose by a landslide, is hoping to at least make a political dent in the party's policies by increasing his share of the vote.

"Every extra percent I get today beyond what I got before is an advancement for the national camp," Feiglin said in an interview with Army Radio Tuesday morning.

Both Netanyahu and Feiglin hope to exceed their totals from the last Likud election in August 2007 when Netanyahu won 73.2 percent of the vote and Feiglin 23.4%. The turnout in that race was only 40%.
