Results for the other parties were not shown.

A poll carried out by Dialogue the day after the Labor chairmanship vote (Monday 13 September 2011) and published the following day shows that Israel’s two largest parties (Kadima and Likud) are losing strength. If MK Yacimovich leads Labor in the next elections Likud would win with 25 seats and a 64-seat right wing coalition; Kadima and Labor would have 22 seats each. If MK Peretz leads Labor in the next elections, Likud would win with 24 seats and own a 65-seat right wing coalition, with Kadima edging out Labor 24 to 18. It would appear that Likud and Shas are losing 3-4 seats to the other right leaning parties, while Kadima is losing seats to Labor and Meretz on the left. The poll has a representative sample of 482 likely voting Israeli adults, and the statistical error is about 4.5 percentage points.

The latest poll taken before the social justice weekend rallies show the Likud standing still with the 27 seats it has now and the other conservative parties taking four seats combined from the center and left. According to the poll Kadima drops ten seats, and the Green Party and Ehud Barak’s Independence Party would receive three seats each. Analysts are trying to understand why the large protests are not affecting the coalition parties’ numbers.
