A new survey conducted by the Geocartography Institute under the direction of Professor Avi Degani points to a continued strengthening of the religious parties in Israel, with Likud recovering somewhat, while Yitzchok Herzog’s Zionist camp has suffered mightily.
According to the survey, if elections were held today, the rightist bloc would have Likud at 25, Bayit Yehudi at 16, Yisroel Beiteinu at 7, while Yahadut Hatorah (UTJ) would have 11 and Shas would garner 7.
Meretz came in with five seats, while Zionist Camp plummeted to 8.
Yair Lapid gained according to the poll, earning 22 seats, with 13 going to the United Arab List.
