The Maagar Mohot Poll differs from the Haaretz Dialog poll in a few interesting ways.  Maagar has Likud with 32 mandates compared to Dialog’s 33, but Kadima drops to 25 seats in the Maagar poll, as opposed to 27 in the Dialog one. This means that the difference between Likud and Kadima is seven seats in the Maagar poll, compared to six in the Dialog.  Another difference between the polls is Maagar has Meretz at its current 3 seats, compared to five in the Dialog poll.

I know that Israel is very far from elections with such a stable coalition but I do think it is important to monitor public opinion of the parties which influence many MKs actions.
