Likud chairman Binyamin Netanyahu would defeat party leadership rival Silvan Shalom if primaries were held today, a survey for the Knesset Channel showed on Thursday. According to the study, 66 percent of voters would choose Netanyahu over Shalom, who would get 34% of the vote. In addition, 61% of voters said Netanyahu would be the best candidate for prime minister, while only 39% said they would vote for Labor chairman Ehud Barak if prime ministerial elections were held today. Netanyahu and Shalom met on Wednesday night to try and set a date for early primaries, but the two have yet to agree upon a time for the elections.
