One out of five haredi voters is planning to back a non-haredi party in this year’s Knesset election, according to a poll published Wednesday morning.

The poll, conducted by Dialcom on behalf of the Kav Itonut chain of local newspapers, surveyed 675 haredi voters on how they plan to vote in the April 9th election.

While the overwhelming majority said they planned to vote for one of the haredi parties, 20.1% said they would not.

Of the roughly 80% who said they would vote for a haredi party, 47.3% said they would vote for the United Torah Judaism party, while 30.5% said they would vote for the Sephardic Shas party, with just 20.4% backing former Shas chief Eli Yishai’s Yahad party or some other haredi faction.

Among those respondents who said they would not vote for a haredi party, most (55.7%) said they would back the Likud, with just 7.2% favoring the New Right, and a similar number backing the Jewish Home-National Union list.

Nearly a fifth (19.5%) said they would vote for Otzma Yehudit, while only 4.6% said they would vote for former IDF chief Benny Gantz’s Israel Resilience Party.
