Likud rebounds in latest poll

November 4, 2016 15:01

In the latest national poll, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party has maintained first place with 26 predicted mandates, down from the party's current 30.

Some polls over recent months had registered Yair Lapid's Yesh Atid as neck and neck with, or even above Likud, however Friday's poll - taken on November 2 by Israel Radio - showed the party in a firm second at 21 mandates. Despite the disappointing feedback, this still represents an increase from the 13 mandates Yesh Atid have sitting in the opposition.

Head opposition party Zionist Union continues to be projected as losing a number of mandates, as in previous polls. Isaac Herzog's party are down from 24 to 13 mandates.

The rest of the results, in numerical order: Joint List (13), Jewish Home (12), Israel Beytenu (8), Kulanu (7), UTJ (7), Shas (7), and Meretz (6).

The response rate was 95%. The poll did not include the number of interviewees.
