The Tzipi Livni Party continued to lose national support as Israelis geared up for January 22 elections, according to a Smith Research poll conducted this week for The Jerusalem Post and the financial newspaper Globes. The party of former foreign minister Tzipi Livni reached a new low of just seven seats - three less than the 10 it was predicted to receive at the beginning of the month.
Perhaps most worrying for Livni is her lack of support from voters under 30, among whom she is attracting less than 3 percent support. She not only trails the frontrunners Likud-Beytenu and Bayit Yehudi among young people, and is far behind her competition on the Center-Left, Yesh Atid and Labor, but she is also behind small parties struggling to pass the electoral threshold such as Green Leaf and Eretz Hadasha.
