Poll indicates Netanyahu could narrowly form right-wing government

A Kan public broadcaster poll predicts Benny Gantz’s Blue and White party will fall below the electoral threshold in the upcoming elections.

The survey gives 30 seats to Likud, 18 to Yesh Atid, 14 to New Hope, 12 to Yamina, 9 to Joint List, 8 to Shas, 7 to United Torah Judaism, 7 to Yisrael Beytenu, 6 to Labor, 5 to Religious Zionism, and 4 to Meretz.

The survey indicates Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could narrowly form a government with right-wing Religious Zionism and Yamina and the ultra-Orthodox parties, which would bring him up to 62 of the Knesset’s 120 seats. That would make Naftali Bennett’s Yamina the kingmaker in negotiations.
