A new poll conducted by Panels Politics for Maariv showed that neither bloc will be easily able to form a coalition. According to the poll, the bloc led by Yesh Atid would win 55 seats, thanks to Meretz passing the electoral threshold, while the Likud-led bloc would win 59 seats. In this poll, the Zionist Spirit party failed to pass the electoral threshold.

According to the poll, if elections were held today, the Likud would win 32 Knesset seats, with Yesh Atid winning 25. The National Unity party, created by a merger of Blue and White and New Hope, and joined by former IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot, would be third-largest in the Knesset, with 12 seats.
