(Worthy News) - The Blue and White party is building a lead over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud, according to a pre-election poll released Thursday, but neither would receive enough support together with their allies to break Israel’s months-long political stalemate.
The Channel 12 poll, the first since a third round of elections in less than a year was called after the Knesset disbanded at midnight Wednesday, also put Netanyahu and Blue and White chief Benny Gantz neck-and-neck in who is best suited to be premier, suggesting corruption charges recently announced against the Likud leader hadn’t significantly dented support among his backers.
If elections were held today, the poll said Blue and White would pick up 35 seats, up from 33 now, while Likud would maintain its current 32. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
