      The latest pre-election poll, carried out by pollster Camille Fuchs for Channel 10 and published Wednesday, shows Likud / Yisrael Beytenu garnering 32 seats in the next Knesset.  The numbers are disappointing for Likud, which is hoping for a much better result in the actual election next Tuesday.

      The second largest party is Labor with 16. Bayit Yehudi, trails Labor by only two seats, with 14.

      Shas and Yesh Atid receive 11 seats each, Tzipi Livni receives nine and United Torah Judaism (UTJ) receives six, as does Meretz.

      Kadima and Otzma Leyisrael receive two seats each.

      If actual results are similar to this poll, Likud will just barely be able to scrape together an unstable 62-seat coalition with both Shas and Yesh Atid inside it, as well as UTJ and Kadima. Otherwise, it appears Bayit Yehudi will be inside the coalition.
