Knesset Jeremy Analysis: Likud-Yisrael Beitenu split gives the right-religious block a three seat advantage compared to the previous poll conducted before the split. However Likud is the clear loser from this split. Likud only has a two-seat edge over Labor & a three-seat edge over Bayit Yehudi. Labor or Bayit Yehudi could be the largest party in Knesset if you factor in the margin of error. I’m happy that every poll from now on will be divided up between Likud & Yisrael Beitenu because that has been obvious for a long time. Shas keeps falling and is now under UTJ. Livni’s party has an impressive showing of 5 seats after being under threshold in all recent polls.
