Surveys: Potential new right-wing alliance would win big in new election

A new Channel 12 poll indicates a right-wing alliance of Yisrael Beytenu chief Avigdor Liberman, former prime minister Naftali Bennett, New Hope leader Gideon Sa’ar, and former Mossad director Yossi Cohen would net the most Knesset seats in an election, winning 25.

A Channel 13 survey yesterday that asked the same question found that prospective party would win 35 seats.

In the Channel 12 Midgam poll, Likud would then win 18 seats, with National Unity at 17, Yesh Atid at 13, Labor-Meretz at 11, Shas at 10, UTJ at 8, Otzma Yehudit at 8, Hadash-Ta’al at 5 and Ra’am at 5.

The current opposition would in such an eventuality win 71 seats in the 120-seat legislature (not including Hadash-Ta’al).

If parties remain as they are today, with only a Labor-Meretz union, National Unity takes the lead at 23, with Likud at 20, Yesh Atid 15, Yisrael Beytenu 14, Labor-Meretz 11, Shas 10, Otzma Yehudit 9, UTJ 8, Hadash-Ta’al 5, Ra’am 5.

The current opposition would in such an eventuality win 68 seats (not including Hadash-Ta’al).

In match-ups between Benjamin Netanyahu and various opposition figures on suitability for the premiership, Netanyahu leads 33% to Yair Lapid’s 29%, Gantz leads 34% to Netanyahu’s 31%, and Bennett leads 39% to Netanyahu’s 29%.
