Feiglin supporters dispute the official figure of 23.21% in the Likud primaries, which is a tad lower than 23.4% he won in the previous primaries.
Though vote rigging is a time-honored tradition in Israel, one that has been widely employed for decades, Feiglin’s figure is actually very good. Traditionally, a losing candidate loses his support in subsequent elections. Thus, Moshe’s electoral support should be expected to have declined significantly—people do not like to vote for assured losers. The fact that his support has remained stable, and perhaps even increased, is a good indication of his progress in Likud.
On the other hand, the results are also skewed against Netanyahu, whose supporters, certain that he is going to win by a large margin, did not bother to show up at polling stations.
