Naftali Bennet is eating into Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's voter base, a TNS/Teleseeker poll conducted for Walla! found on Wednesday.

The poll showed Bennett's Bayit Hayehudi party rising to 15 seats, an increase of four from the previous poll, conducted eight days earlier. The Likud Beytenu list dropped two seats from the previous poll to 35, still projecting it as the clear winner of the upcoming January 22 election.

The 66-strong Right bloc also included 10 seats for Shas and 6 for UTJ, while the 54-seat Left bloc included Labor at 18, Yesh Atid at 10, and The Tzipi Livni Party at 11, while Kadima did not pass the electoral threshold, the poll found.

The poll surveyed 500 people over the age of 18 representative of Israel's population, and had a margin of error of plus or minus two mandates.
