New Hope-Blue and White poised to be third-largest party – polls

The new alliance between the New Hope and Blue and White parties will be a success in the coming elections, according to two polls published this evening.

But perhaps more importantly, both surveys predict that the Likud-led right-religious bloc will not garner 61 seats, meaning Israel’s years-long political crisis, which has already generated five election cycles in under four years, is poised to continue.

Following are the results of a survey by the Kan public broadcaster:

Likud 34
Yesh Atid 23
Blue and White-New Hope 14
Religious Zionism 10
Shas 8
United Torah Judaism 7
Joint List 6
Yisrael Beytenu 5
Labor 5
Ra’am 4
Meretz 4
Yamina below threshold

And the results of a Channel 12 poll:

Likud 34
Yesh Atid 23
Blue and White-New Hope 13
Religious Zionism 10
Shas 8
UTJ 7
Joint List 6
Yisrael Beytenu 6
Labor 5
Ra’am 4
Meretz 4
Yamina below threshold

The Channel 12 poll also finds that most of the Israeli public (52 percent) does not think far-right MK Itamar Ben Gvir would be a legitimate cabinet appointment, as opposed to 33% who have no problem with him being named a minister.
