According to the poll, the Likud party gained 30 seats, compared to 29 in last poll, while the Blue and White Party is down to 35 seats from the 37 it had on Friday.
A new elections poll published by KAN on Wednesday morning saw the right-wing bloc slightly strengthening, while the centrist block weakened by one seat.

The right-wing bloc grew to 61 seats, which means it could scrape a narrow win and actually form a government led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

According to the poll, the Likud Party gained 30 seats, compared to 29 in last poll, while the Blue and White Party is down to 35 seats from the 37 it had on Friday.

The Arab Hadash-Ta'al Party received eight seats, while both United Torah Judaism and the Labor Party were pegged for seven seats.

Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked’s New Right Party received five seats, according to the poll, and so did Shas, Meretz, Kulanu and Bayit Yehudi.

Interestingly, the poll also predicted that Moshe Feiglin’s Zehut Party would just make the threshold with five seats. 

Meanwhile, the KAN poll also found that 30% of the public believes that Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit's decision to file an indictment, subject to a hearing, against Netanyahu could reduce the chances that they would vote for the Likud in the April 9 election.

However, about two-thirds of the respondents - 58% - said the attorney-general's decision did not affect their vote.
