If the Israeli elections were held today, Yair Lapid's Yesh Atid party would continue their meteoric rise from their current 19 Knesset seats to a whopping 25, according to a survey taken by Ma'agar Hamochot for Channel 10 which was released Sunday.

Responding to a question of whether or not they regretted their vote in the past election, most respondents replied that they do not regret their decision, however there was a notable number of the polled that revealed they wish they had voted for Yesh Atid.

The added mandates for Yesh Atid came at the expense of the Labor party, who dropped to 11 seats according to the poll and Kadima as well who would drop below the threshold with only one seat.

When asked about the negotiations leading up to the new coalition, 50% of the polled responded that they were not happy, and only 39% answered that they were indeed happy with the results of the negotiations.
