12th Ikar Ha'emuna has 43% Israeli Support

A YNet - Smith Institute poll finds that 43% of the Israeli population believes in the coming of Mashiah.

I'd be interested to know (if anyone has more info) if this is an increasing or decreasing trend or if they think that the results are not an accurate representation of the total population.

Everyone should have a joyous Sukkot, and may Hashem establish for us the fallen Sukkah of David speedily in our days.

I'm just curious about the graph: how comes it that 2% of "Religious" don't believe in the coming of Mashiach?

Maoz, I wondered the same thing. According to the Rambam, they wouldn't be considered so "Religious", even if they consider themselves to be so.
As we just read in the Haftara for the first day of Sukkot, all will start believing real soon.
