A poll conducted for Israel Hayom by Maagar Mochot showed that if elections were held today, the Likud party would receive 34 Knesset seats.

The second-largest party, Yesh Atid, would win 24 Knesset seats.

The Zionist Union party, which today has 24 seats, would drop to 10 seats, and the Joint Arab List (13) would drop to 10 seats. The Sephardic-haredi Shas party would not pass the electoral threshold.

Meanwhile, the Jewish Home party would receive 14 Knesset seats, up from its current 8, and the Ashkenazic-haredi UTJ party, which currently has 6 Knesset seats, would rise to 8 seats. Defense Minister Liberman's Yisrael Beytenu party would retain its current five seats.

Left-wing Meretz would rise from five seats to seven. However, Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon's Kulanu party would drop from 10 seats to 6.

The results of such an election would give Netanyahu a stable coalition of 67 seats based on the current coalition - but excluding Shas.
