Majority of Israelis Back LGBT Protests, New Poll Finds

07/25/2018 | Times of Israel

A majority of Israelis from across the political spectrum support the LGBT community’s fight to secure surrogacy rights for gay couples, a Hadashot TV news poll found. The poll published Tuesday showed 56 percent of the public support the recent LGBT protests, while 33% oppose them. Though right-wing parties are traditionally seen as socially conservative, the poll showed 51% of Likud voters backed the protests, and perhaps more surprisingly, so did 58% of voters for Jewish Home, a largely religious party. Support from centrist and left-wing parties was indeed substantially higher, with Zionist Union voters at 87% support, Yesh Atid at 89% and Meretz at 82%.
