A new poll conducted against the background of the possibility of dispersing the Knesset and going to the polls in about two weeks, presents dramatic data regarding the question of suitability for the post of prime minister, with right-wing chairman Naftali Bennett dramatically narrowing the gap with Netanyahu.

According to a survey conducted by the Sample Institute, a model headed by Mano Geva, and published in Ulpan Shishi in Keshet 12, if the Knesset elections had taken place today, the Likud party would still be the largest party in the Knesset with 31 seats. It is followed by Atid-Telam, headed by Yair Lapid, with 18 seats.

The survey also shows that Blue and White led by Bnei Gantz receives only 11 seats, Shas led by Aryeh Deri receives 8 seats, and so does Torah Judaism led by Yaakov Litzman.

Avigdor Lieberman’s Yisrael Beiteinu party receives 7 seats, and Meretz, led by Nitzan Horowitz, closes the list with only 6 seats.

Four parties do not pass the blocking percentage: Labor, Derech Eretz, The Jewish Home and Gesher.

According to the results of the survey, the only one who manages to challenge Netanyahu on the question of suitability is right-wing chairman Naftali Bennett, who positions himself as the opposition to the government’s conduct in dealing with the corona crisis and the economic crisis.

The gap between the two stands at only 10% in favor of Netanyahu (36% -26%). The reason for the small gap between the two is that leftists prefer Bennett over Netanyahu. On the right, too, sympathy is felt for Bennett, with every two respondents who prefer Netanyahu, one prefers Bennett.
