Seats Continue to Shift with Elections One Month Away


A survey conducted this week by Prof. Avi Degani, president of Geocartography, shows that with only one month before elections, the number of expected seats for the top parties continues to shift.

According to the poll, PM Binyamin Netanyahu's strong assault on Naftali Bennett might have had an effect opposite to the one the PM desired, and may have cost Likud Beyteinu one seat, leaving them with an expected 36. Yet on the other hand, the entire turn of events may have cost Naftali Bennett's Jewish Home party some seats as well, as the survey puts his party down three seats to 12.5 mandates - a questionable conclusion, as most polls had the party at 11-13 seats to begin with..

The other top parties are Labor with 14, Shas with 12, Yesh Atid with 10, United Torah Judaism with 7, Meretz with 6, HaTnua with 4.5, Otzma Leyisrael with 4, the Arab parties with 10.
