Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s Yamina Party would win four seats if an election was held today, losing three seats in a span of three days, a new poll found on Thursday. Yesh Atid and Unite Torah Judaism (UTJ) each gained a seat in the poll, while the Likud lost two seats and the Religious Zionist Party lost one. The full results were Likud 34; Yesh Atid 21; Religious Zionist nine; Blue and White eight; UTJ, Shas and Labor seven; Joint List six; Yisrael Beytenu five; and Yamina, Meretz, New Hope and Ra’am all received four.

Despite Yamina’s sharp drop, the coalition parties gained two mandates. The current coalition and opposition blocs tied 57-57, with the Joint List winning the other six seats of the 120-member Knesset. The June 20 poll, which was conducted soon after Bennett and Alternate Prime Minister Yair Lapid announced that the Knesset would disperse, had the opposition leading 59-55. However, the poll did not indicate any significant new voter trends. The main difference was that, unlike the first poll, Meretz managed to pass the electoral threshold and its votes were not wasted. Nonetheless, the poll showed movement on the Right, as Yamina voters shifted to Likud and Religious Zionist, Likud voters shifted to Religious Zionist and Religious Zionist to UTJ.
