New polls mixed on success of 'Likud-Beytenu'

Two polls released Sunday night showed wildly different prospects for "Likud-Beytenu," the impending party union between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's Likud and Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman's Yisrael Beytenu.
A Channel 10 poll showed the union shrinking to 35 seats, down from the combined 42 mandates the two parties currently have. The same poll saw Shelly Yacimovich's Labor in second with 23 seats, followed by 14 for Shas and 13 for Yesh Atid, Yair Lapid's new party.
A similar poll on Channel 2, however, showed "Likud-Beytenu" maintaining its 42 seats, with Labor at 23, Yesh Atid at 9 and Shas at 13.
