A survey by the Midgam Institute performed for Channel 12 News indicates a continued downward trajectory in public confidence in Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's handling of the coronavirus crisis.

From 74% handing the Prime minister a good grade two months ago to 58% last week, and now - only 46% approve of Netanyahu's treatment of the crisis.

On the economic issue, only 33% support the Prime Minister's policy, with most Right-leaning voters believing the crisis is being dealt with badly.

Alongside this, the Yamina Party strengthened significantly in the poll, receiving 11 seats. The Likud wins at 37, the Joint Arab List 15 and also Yesh Atid gets 15.

Blue and White receives 11 seats in the poll, Shas 9, Yisrael Beyteinu 8, United Torah Judaism 7, and Meretz 7.

The Labor, Jewish Home, Derech Eretz, and Gesher parties do not pass the electoral threshold.

The data shows that if elections were soon held, the Right bloc would be guaranteed 64 seats, the Left/Arab axis 48, with Yisrael Beyteinu continuing to wander between them with 8 seats.
