Yisrael Hayom Survey: Likud Rises; Barak Out

If elections were held today, the Likud party of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu would take 29 Knesset seats, according to a poll, published Friday in the Yisrael Hayom daily. That's one more than the parliament's current largest faction, Kadima, which would sink to seven seats.

Labor would rise to 20 mandates, followed by Yisrael Beytenu with 15. Yair Lapid's new Yesh Atid party would check in with 13 seats, followed by the Shas party with 11. Defense Minister Ehud Barak's five-member Ha'atzma'ut faction, which broke away from Labor, would not draw enough votes for representation.
