"The Statnet poll also found that the majority of Arab voters (58%) said that they wanted their party to recommend Isaac Herzog to form a coalition – a telling finding, given that in past elections Arab parties abstained from recommending a Jewish candidate."

"In addition, 64% of respondents wanted the Joint List to be part of the coalition – an unprecedented finding given the declaration by the leaders of the Joint List that they would not join any coalition (but might support it from the outside). And a full 28% said they supported being a part of any coalition."

"A full 70% said that improving the economic status of Arab Israelis should be the foremost concern of Arab MKs, not involving themselves in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict."
