The latest poll gives the nationalist camp 68 seats, a gain of three. Prime Minster Netanyahu’s Likud’s 30 seats are double second place Labor’s 15. Kadima receives the same number of seats whether Livni or Mofaz leads the party. Lapid earns 11 seats, although it is still unclear who will be on his list. According to the poll there seems to be three tiers- Likud at the top, five parties with 10-15 seats and seven parties with 3-6 seats.

The Smith Institute Poll was published by newspaper Globes on January 27, 2012. The sample was of 500 people, and the margin of error stood at 4.5%.
