A new poll published tonight by Channel 14 News and conducted by the Direct Polls polling institute, gives the right-wing bloc under Benjamin Netanyahu 61 seats despite the decision of the Blue and White and New Hope parties to run together.

According to the poll, the two largest parties would remain the Likud with 36 seats and Yesh Atid with 20 seats. The Blue and White-New Hope joint list would receive 14 seats.

The Shas and Religious Zionism parties would receive nine seats each. United Torah Judaism would receive seven seats, Yisrael Beytenu would receive six seats. Labor, Ra'am, and the United Arab List would receive five seats each. Meretz would receive four seats.

The Yamina party under Ayelet Shaked would receive just 1.9% of the vote and fail to cross the electoral threshold necessary to receive any Knesset seats.
