Walla Poll: Right Bloc Opens Gap above Center-Left

If the elections were held today, the right-religious bloc would win 64 of the Knesset's 120 seats, according to a poll published, Tuesday, on the Walla Website. The number is one more than Walla last reported, bringing the margin above the center-left bloc to eight mandates. Likud-Beyteinu's leading list went down to 37 seats while Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) climbed to tie Shas at 11 mandates.

Labor stayed at 17, while Yesh Atid rose to 11 and Hatenu'ah fell to 10. Meretz remained at four and Kadima faced leaving the Knesset with only two potential seats.
