On the eve of the closure of the lists that will be running for the Knesset, a new poll released Wednesday evening shows the Bayit Yehudi list getting eleven seats in the Knesset. The numbers in the new poll, conducted on behalf of Channel 10,  are the best the party has achieved so far this election season, and place the parry as the third largest in the Knesset.

The poll also showed that the parties on the right and center right continued to achieve high numbers with the public. The Likud/Yisrael Beytenu joint list would get 37 seats in the Knesset if elections were held today. A distant second place is taken by Labor, with 20 seats. Bayit Yehudi, with 11 seats, would be third largest.

Following them in the poll is Shas, with ten seats, Tzipi Livni's “Hatenu'a” party with 9, Yair Lapid's “Yesh Atid” with 7, United Torah Jewry with 6, Meretz with 4, and Am Shalem and Kadima with two each.
