Knesset Jeremy Analysis: Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Likud is on top with 30 seats. Economy Minister Naftali Bennett’s Bayit Yehudi comes in second with 18 seats in the Panels poll, compared to 13 seats in the Smith poll. Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman’s Yisrael Beitenu has 8 seats in the Panels poll, compared to 13 seats in the Smith poll. The explanation of this unusual 5-seat difference between Panels & Smith in regards to recent polls for both parties following the Likud Beitenu split can be explained simply that most likely the actual result is in the middle of both polling systems margin of error.
