More than half of Israelis support applying sovereignty to parts of Judea and Samaria, and a quarter believe Israel should take that step even if the United States does not support it, a new Israel Democracy Institute found on Wednesday.
Annexation is supported by 50.1% of Israelis, opposed by 30.9% and 19% do not know or refused to answer. Among the half in favor of the move, 25.3% said they would only back it with the US administration’s support and 24.8% said even without it.

Asked about the chances that the Palestinians would react to an Israeli application of sovereignty over the Jordan Valley and parts of the West Bank with a large-scale intifada, 58.3% deemed the chances high, 28.1% low and 13.6% did not answer or admitted that they do not know.
When Jewish respondents were divided into political affiliation, 77% of self-proclaimed leftists said they expected an intifada, 64% of centrists and 55% of right-wingers.
More than half the public (52.4%) said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be able to function properly as prime minister despite his ongoing criminal trial, 41% believe he cannot and 6.6% did not answer or did not know.
When asked about Netanyahu’s claim that the trial is an attempt to circumvent the election and depose him, 38.9% agreed, 51.1% disagreed and 10 percent did not know or refused to respond.
The rotation between Netanyahu and Blue and White leader Benny Gantz will be honored, 41.5% of respondents said, while 47.9% disagreed and 10.6% said they did not know or did not answer.
Asked what issue the new government should focus on, 33.9% said economics and unemployment, 12.6% health and COVID-19, 11.5% security and foreign affairs, 11.4% welfare, 10.5% equality and social justice, 9.3% political reforms, 1.3% religion and state, 1.2% other and 3.4% did not answer or did not know.
The poll of 622 Hebrew-speaking and 149 Arabic-speaking Israelis representing a statistical sample of the adult Israeli population had a margin of error of +-3.7% at a confidence level of 95%.
