Poll shows little change since new lockdown announced

An opinion poll published by Channel 12 news shows little change in the allocation of Knesset seats since the announcement of a new national lockdown, which came into effect today.

The poll predicts 28 seats for Likud,19 for Likud breakaway MK Gideon Sa’ar’s New Hope party, 16 for Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid-Telem, 13 for Yamina, 11 for the Joint List, 8 each for Shas and United Torah Judaism, 7 for Yisrael Beytenu and 5 for both Blue and White and Meretz.

According to the poll, a theoretical new center-left party made up of Labor leader Amir Peretz, Blue and White MK Avi Nissenkorn, former Yesh Atid MK Ofer Shelah, and Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai could gain up to 7 seats, weakening primarily Yesh Atid and Blue and White.
