A poll conducted for Channel 13 News by Prof. Camil Fuchs, which was published on Monday evening, found that 55% of respondents are in favor of stopping the legislation process of the judicial reform in favor of negotiations, and only 31% support the continuation of the legislation process. Among Likud voters, the results are different - 52% are in favor of continuing the legislation, compared to 32% who think it should be stopped in favor of negotiations.

In addition, the respondents were asked, "If the coalition agrees to freeze the legislation in favor of negotiations - should the protest be stopped during this time?" 53% responded that the protest should be stopped in such a situation, while 33% answered that they think the protest should continue even if the legislation process in the Knesset is stopped.

Among the voters of Yesh Atid, the largest party in the opposition, 53% think that the protest should continue, while 39% answered that the protest should be stopped during the negotiations. On the economic question, 43% said they are concerned over their economic situation following the legislation and the same percentage of respondents answered that they are not concerned over their economic situation.

Among Likud voters the picture is slightly different: 62% are not concerned, while 26% of Likud voters are concerned that their economic situation will be harmed. To the question of whether the respondents considered withdrawing their money and depositing it in bank accounts located outside of Israel, the large majority of respondents, 73%, answered that they had not considered it, compared to 17% who had considered it. 10% replied, "I don't know".

Another interesting question that poll respondents were asked dealt with their opinion on the law banning the entry of chametz into hospitals during the holiday of Passover, which was approved in its first reading in the Knesset on Sunday. 57% of the respondents answered that they oppose the law, compared to 32% who support the law and 11% who replied, "I don't know".

The poll found that, if Knesset elections were held today, Likud would remain the largest party, with 27 seats, Yesh Atid is gaining strength and stands at 26 seats, compared to 24 it received in the last elections. The National Unity Party wins 14 seats, the Religious Zionist and Otzma Yehudit joint ticket wins 12 seats, Shas weakens slightly and receives 10 seats, and United Torah Judaism remains with 7 seats.

The Labor Party would win 4 seats if elections were held today, and the Yisrael Beytenu Party would win 5 seats, as does as the Hadash-Ta'al Party. Mansour Abbas' Ra'am Party gains strength and wins 6 seats, Balad wins 4 seats, while Meretz does not pass the electoral threshold.
