Poll: Among candidates, Sharon closest to Judaism

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is closest to Judaism among the top three candidates for premier, an Army Radio-Gesher poll found. More than 23 percent of the 503 respondents said they believed Sharon was more connected to Judaism, followed by Labor Chairman Amir Peretz (22%) and Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu (15%). However, 27% said all three candidates were 'not at all' close to Judaism.
