Poll: Most Likud voters want Netanyahu to launch diplomatic drive for Palestinian state

A majority of registered Likud voters believe that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu should launch a diplomatic initiative that would eventually yield a Palestinian state alongside Israel, according to a new poll commissioned by the Geneva Initiative.
The survey, which was done for the Geneva Initiative by New Wave Research, found that 53 percent of Likudniks and a majority of the general public (58 percent) believe that the government should make a renewed push toward a settlement with the Palestinians in the wake of the seven-week military campaign against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
