Polls: Huldai’s new party at 8-9 seats, siphoning support from Lapid, Bennett

Three television polls by TV networks this evening show Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai’s new party eating into support for Yair Lapid’s centrist Yesh Atid and Naftali Bennett’s right-wing Yamina, but failing to much affect Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud and Gideon Sa’ar’s New Hope.

Meanwhile Benny Gantz’s Blue and White continues its crash, just barely passing the electoral threshold in both polls.

Despite enjoying a lead, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu still does not have a clear path to forming the next government, with rival Gideon Sa’ar vowing not to bring his New Hope party into a government under Netanyahu.
