Poll: Netanyahu’s Likud Loses 5 Seats to Jewish Home Party in Past Month
by News Editor
Times of Israel – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud-Beytenu mega-party has lost an estimated five seats — mostly to the ascendant Jewish Home party — in the past month, according to a poll published on Wednesday in Haaretz.
If elections were held today, Likud-Beytenu would win a mere 34 seats — five fewer than an identical poll conducted a month earlier — a Dialog poll conducted on Monday by Professor Camil Fuchs of Tel Aviv University found. Last week’s Dialog poll gave Likud-Beytenu, who currently control 42 seats in the Knesset, 35 seats in the 120-seat parliament.
