Dahlia Scheindlin

Political Analyst, Pollster, Fellow at the Century Foundation

Israelis are going to the polls. Again. For the fourth time in two years.

How is this election round different from others? What is it about? Are there new players on the scene? Who are they and do they have a chance of denying Prime Minister Netanyahu another term in office? How is the traditional left faring? What about the Arab vote and the prospects for a shared Jewish Arab party?

Political analyst and pollster Dahlia Scheindlin will discuss these and other questions on this APN webinar, another in our series on Israel’s March 23rd elections.

Dahlia Scheindlin is a public opinion expert and an international political and strategic consultant, as well as a scholar and a writer. She has advised and conducted research on seven national campaigns in Israel over the past twenty years, and has provided research and advising for elections, referendums, and civil society campaigns in fifteen different countries.

Tuesday's election will have tremendous impact on our country and our world. This of course includes our work striving for peace for Israel and Palestine. Who sits in the White House, and the team of people who work for that person, will define the framework in which our work is done. In addition to that, which parties control the House and the Senate, and which elected officials serve as leaders, committee chairs and champions, will be critically important.
