Updated exit poll appears to put coalition out of Netanyahu’s reach

Channel 12 has updated its exit poll figures again, showing dwindling support for a possible pro-Benjamin Netanyahu bloc.

Likud has dropped down to 30 seats, and Yamina has lost a seat, falling to 7.

Shas moves back up to 9 seats and Blue and White drops back to 7 seats.

The net effect is 61 seats for an anti-Netanyahu amalgam of parties, 52 seats for the right-religious parties backing Likud, and Yamina in the middle with 7, meaning that even with Yamina’s support, Likud would not be able to form a government.

Pollster Manu Geva says the next exit poll update will be the last, with actual results expected to begin trickling in.
