Likud or Israel Beiteinu

If I were an Israeli citizen getting ready to vote in Feb 10 legislative elections, the party most closely aligned with my views is Likud according to an online questionnaire. Likud, headed by Benyamin Netanyahu, is ahead in the polls but losing ground to Kadima headed into the election.

You can find your place in Israeli politics by taking the Israel Electoral Compass. It will analyze your position as Socioeconomic left and right, hawk / dove, religious / secular.

Likud
You are 8% more economic left
You are 2% more progressive
You have a substantive agreement of 78%
Security: 88%
Socioeconomic: 68%
Religion: 90%

But a close second was

Israel Beiteinu

Socioeconomic: 68%
Religion: 80%
