National Camp 65

The telephone poll was carried out on 4-5 March 2012 for Haaretz by Dialogue of a representative sample of 497 Israelis, with a statistical error of +/- 4.5 percentage points. Partial results were published in Haaretz on 8 March 2012 and the rest were published the next day. The big winner is the national camp which scores between 71 to 74 seats. The big loser is Livni who has a poor showing a few weeks before her primary. I will have an analysis piece on the Jewish Press and will put up the link here when they put it up.
