Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is popular as ever according to a poll published by Yediot Acharonot and would easily be reelected for a fifth term as premier.
His Likud party would rise from 30 seats to 33 if elections took place now and his coalition comprised of Bayit Yehudi, Kulanu, Yisrael Beiteinu, Shas, and UTJ would secure 64 seats, only two less than its present 66.
Kulanu would fall from 10 seats to 7 and Bayit Yehudi from eight to seven. Shas would plunge from seven mandates to five, UTJ would climb from six to seven and Yisrael Beiteinu would retain six seats.
Among the opposition, Yesh Atid would rise from 11 to 18 seats making it the second largest party after Likud, Zionist Union would fall from 24 seats to 15, Meretz would rise from five to six, and the Arab Joint List would fall from 13 to 12 seats.
