New Poll: Likud is regaining strength lost since March 2020
(Worthy News) – A new Israeli poll shows Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party is regaining popularity it had lost since the March 2020 election, Israel National News reports. Conducted by Midgam and released Sunday, the poll surveyed 505 respondents by phone and the internet.
Likud currently has 36 seats and the new poll shows the party would win only 30 seats if elections were held today. However, the latest survey has shown an increase from the 29 seats Likud received in a Midgam poll released last week, INN reports.
The new poll also shows Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid party is continuing to rise, with 17 seats – up one from 16 last week, INN said.
On the other hand, the New Hope party led by former Likud MK Gideon Sa’ar lost a seat in the poll, falling to 14 seats from 15 seats last week. The right-wing Yamina party also lost one seat, falling to 13 seats from 14 last week.
The Joint Arab List kept its 10 seats and Yisrael Beytenu kept its seven seats, the poll shows. The United Torah Judaism and Shas Haredi parties each got eight seats in the latest survey. Labor received five seats while Meretz and Benny Gantz’s Blue and White party each got four seats in the poll, INN reports.
