Polls conducted by Channel 12 and Kan show Benjamin Netanyahu’s government rebounding slightly in the polls, following the recent Gaza operation.

Channel 12 has Likud growing by three seats if elections were held today, to 27, leaving it tied with the opposition’s National Unity which had surpassed it in recent surveys.

Netanyahu’s right-wing and religious bloc would rise slightly compared to previous polls, to 52 seats — though this is still a significant drop from the 64 it enjoys today and keeps it in the minority.

After having trailed National Unity’s Benny Gantz earlier this month on who is most suited to serve as prime minister (Gantz 41% to Netanyahu’s 31% on May 7), Netanyahu makes an impressive recovery, now leading Gantz, 38% to 37%.

Kan’s poll has Likud at 28 to National Unity’s 26, and Netanyahu’s bloc at 55 seats.
