Poll: Meretz barely making minimum threshold

A poll conducted by the Geocartographic Institute and Professor Avi Degani for Army Radio showed Meretz-Yahad winning two to three mandates in the March Knesset elections - barely above the minimum threshold. The poll gave Kadima 39 mandates, the first time in weeks that the number of expected mandates for the party has dipped below 40. Labor took 22 mandates in the poll, and the Likud crept up to 16 mandates.
