A poll conducted by Kantar Media for Kan 11 News and published on Wednesday, a day after the unveiling of the “Deal of the Century” found that if elections were held today, the Blue and White party would win the highest number of seats - 34.

The Likud would win 33 seats in the 23rd Knesset, the Joint List 14, while Labor-Gesher-Meretz, Yisrael Beytenu, Shas and United Torah Judaism would each win 8 seats.

Yamina would win 7 seats, while the Otzma Yehudit party does not pass the electoral threshold in the poll.

The center-left-Arab bloc has 56 seats without Yisrael Beytenu, and the right-wing bloc has the same number.

The poll also found that 61% of Israelis believe the Trump peace plan will not result in peace between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs and only 10% believe it will succeed in achieving peace.
