Late last week, Netanyahu and his foreign minister said their two parties would run on a joint list in the January general elections. But the move has sparked widespread dissent within Likud with many fearing it would hurt the party, Sunday's newspapers reported.
Figures from a survey of Likud voters released at the weekend by Israel's Channel 10 television showed 26 percent were against the move, 58 percent in favor.
