Yisrael Hayom Poll: Likud-Beytenu 39 Seats


If January's Knesset elections were held today, the Likud-Yisrael Beytenu bloc would take 39 seats, according to a Gal Hahadash (New Wave) Research Institute survey, published Friday in the Yisrael Hayom daily. The Labor party would garner 20 mandates and Tzipi Livni's new Tenu'ah party would receive seven seats. Livni's old Kadima party would only get two seats, not enough to stay in the Knesset. The same holds true for the Am Shalem party of former Shas Member of Knesset Chaim Amsalem.

The newly-merged Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) and Tekumah faction of the Ichud Le'umi (National Union) would take ten seats and Meretz would receive four.
