The latest opinion poll: Meretz leaves, Netanyahu has a possible coalition


0


Meretz is below the minimum vote for the first time, according to a poll published by Kan Channel 11 yesterday evening. The Left Party, led by Nitzan Horowitz, received only 2.8% of the vote in the poll. 3.5% is the minimum voting share required to obtain any representation in the Knesset. It appears that the voters who abandoned Meretz have switched to the Labor Party headed by Merav Mikhaeli, which in this poll is expected to win seven seats in the Knesset in the March 23 elections. Some may also have gone to Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid party, which is expected to win 18 seats. The poll, published yesterday, showed Likud won 29 seats, Gideon Sa’ar’s New Hope party won 14, Right won 13, the Arab Joint List won 9, Shas won 8, Labor and United Torah Judaism won 7, and Yisrael Beiteinu won 6 seats Hezbollah’s list is on 6 seats, a religious Zionist party with Otzma Yehudit on 5, Blue and White on 4, and Meretz, as mentioned, without seats, as is the case with the wonderful and economic Yaron Zelikha party led by Mansour Abbas. If Meretz does indeed remain outside the Knesset, it will be the first time since the party was founded in 1992. The expected result is that the pro-Netanyahu bloc, the Likud and the ultra-Orthodox (ultra-Orthodox), has a total of 49 seats in the Knesset. If Yamina, led by Naftali Bennett, joins the bloc after the elections, Netanyahu will have the support of 62 out of 120 Knesset members, and he will be able to form a government. Poll respondents were also asked who would prefer the position of prime minister in two different scenarios: Netanyahu versus Lapid, and Netanyahu versus Sa’ar. In the first scenario, Netanyahu led by 45% versus only 28% for Lapid (the rest of the respondents had no preference). But in the second scenario, Netanyahu’s margin was only 38% versus 33% for Sa’ar, one of Netanyahu’s narrowest gaps against a competitor seen in the last elections. However, Sa’ar’s party is not even close to Likud in the expected Knesset seats. The average results of the five most recent opinion polls are as follows: Likud – 30 Knesset seats – Yesh Atid – 18 New Hope – 13 Right – 11 Arab Joint List – 9 Shas – 8 United States Judaism – 7 Yisrael Beiteinu – 6 Labor – 6 Meretz – 4 Religious Zionist – Otzma Yehudit – 4 Blue & Whiite – 4 Posted by Globes, Israeli Business News – en.globes.co.il – on February 10, 2021 © Copyright Globes Publisher Itonut (1983) Ltd. 2021
