Naftali Bennett's Bayit Yehudi party rose three seats from 11 to 14 in just one week, according to a Smith Research poll conducted Tuesday and Wednesday for The Jerusalem Post and the economic newspaper Globes.

The rise came after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and other Likud leaders attacked Bennett for saying his conscience would not permit him as a reserve soldier to evacuate Jews from their homes in Judea and Samaria.

Surprisingly one third of Bayit Yehudi's voters define themselves as secular and forty percent of Bayit Yehudi's support comes from from voters 30 and younger. The older voters get, the less likely they are to vote for the party.

“Sometimes the older generation marginalizes the youth of our country saying they are only interested in iPads and video games," said Bayit Yehudi candidate Jeremy Gimpel, who is 14th on the list. "The fact that we are the most popular party among young Israelis is testimony that Israel's next generation is as passionate and Zionist as ever."
