A survey conducted by the Direct Polls Institute revealed that if Knesset elections were held today, the Likud would remain on top with 41 seats.
The Joint Arab List would end up with 16 seats, becoming the second-largest faction in Israel's government. Yesh Atid-Telem would get 15 seats, and Blue and White headed by Benny Gantz would finish with just 11.
Survey results indicate that between five and six of the seats that ended up going to the left-wing bloc in the previous elections—mainly voters who supported Telem's Moshe Ya'alon, four of whose members have already defected to other parties— now support the Likud and its sovereignty plan.
Parties that would fail to cross the voting threshold would inclucde: Yoaz Hendel and Zvi Hauser's faction with 1.6%, Labor with 1.1%, Otzma - 0.5% and Gesher with 0.2%.
Support for sovereignty
The survey found that 42% of the public support the application of Israeli sovereignty over the entire Jordan Valley and all settlements mentioned in Trump's 'Deal of the Century.' 4% are in favor of applying sovereignty only in the Jordan Valley, with 8% supporting annexing Gush Etzion and Ma'ale Adumim. 39% of Israelis are opposed to the move.
A political analysis indicated that there was a large majority on the right in favor of the plan (71%) versus a large majority opposed on the left (81%). The issue seems to mark the new-old divide between the Right and Left in Israel.
