Poll: Netanyahu’s bloc 1 seat short of majority if Yamina joins

The Kan public broadcaster releases its final poll ahead of Tuesday’s Knesset elections, predicting both Prime Minister Netanyahu and his rivals will fall short of a majority.

Netanyahu’s Likud is the largest party in the poll with 31 seats, followed by Opposition Leader Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid with 19.

The right-wing Yamina and New Hope parties each pick up nine seats, while the majority Arab Joint List and ultra-Orthodox Shas get eight seats apiece. The survey also predicts the ultra-Orthodox United Torah Judaism party and right-wing secularist Yisrael Beytenu will receive seven seats, and the center-left Labor and the far-right Religious Zionism five each.

Rounding out the poll are the centrist Blue and White party, left-wing Meretz and Islamist Ra’am with four seats each.

The poll includes 1,406 respondents and has a 2.6 percent margin of error.
