Israel – Shas Losing as Bennett’s Party Surging from 5 to 15-18 Seats

BibiFeed Reports: Shas is the 2nd on the list to lose a substantial amount of votes to Naftali Bennett’s Bayit Yehudi party, who has suprisingly gained five seats in the past week to a total of 18 projected seats if elections were held today, according to a Geocartography poll conducted for Reshet Bet. Shas would receive only 8 seats.

The joint Likud Beitenu list seemed to have stalled its downwards trend, with 35 seats, and with the strongest base of certain voters (78% are certain about their vote). Labor party would receive 18 seats, however, only 58% are most certain about their vote, the poll shows.

The most surprising of all, is Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid Party that has significantly lost half of its seats, dropping to five, with only 50% certain of their vote, according to the poll. The poll also shows vague support for Tzipi Livni’s Hatnu’a Party, that gained one seat since last week, placing it at a total of six seats. Religious Zionist party Strong Israel, for some odd reason gained two seats for a total of six seats.

Overall, The Right-Wing/Religious parties bloc would win 73 mandates and the Center-Left/Arab parties bloc would win only 47 seats, according to the poll.
