A poll published tonight indicates that Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud is losing support, but his bloc still manages to get 60 seats in the 120-seat Knesset.
The poll by the Kan public broadcaster also shows Prime Minister Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid rising compared to previous polls.
According to the poll, Netanyahu’s Likud would get 32 seats, followed by Yesh Atid with 24, National Unity 12, Religious Zionism 12, Shas 9, United Torah Judaism 7, the Joint List 5, Labor 5, Yisrael Beytenu 5, Meretz 5 and Ra’am 4.
Yamina’s Ayelet Shaked, who has rejoined Jewish Home does not pass the electoral threshold.
According to the poll, Netanyahu’s religious right bloc is at 60 seats, one short of a majority. The current coalition sits at 55 seats and the mostly Arab Joint List, who supports neither bloc, is at 5.
Israeli TV polls are notably unreliable, but nevertheless, often steer the decision-making of politicians.
