      TV Poll Puts Habayit Hayehudi in Third Place


      Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) has enough votes for 12 seats in the Knesset, according to a poll published, Thursday evening on the Mishal Cham television program, making it the third largest faction in the Knesset. Likud-Beyteinu and Labor maintained their top two spots, garnering 37 and 20 mandates, respectively.

      Shas would win 11 seats, followed by Hatenu'ah with nine mandates, and Yesh Atid would score seven seats, just ahead of Yahadut Hatorah's six mandates. Meretz would have four seats and the Arab or predominantly Arab other lists would have a total of ten mandates.
