Likud Tops Poll Again, Labor and Lapid Chip Away at Kadima

Although elections are scheduled for October 2013, most of the parties’ leaders are already set. The leaders of Likud, Labor, Yisrael Beitenu (pending Liberman’s legal fate), Shas, Meretz, Independence, and Lapid’s new party are known, leading to speculation that most parties are anticipating early elections. The last of the current round of primaries is Kadima’s leadership next month. Dahaf asked 500 people based on the two main Kadima options who they would vote for and the results were not so disparate. Livni’s 13 seats give her a three-seat advantage over Mofaz. The difference between Livni and Mofaz from the nationalist camp point of view is 60 seats vs 61 seats. Yair Lapid’s new party consistently takes away support from a slumping Kadima and does not take away significant support from the nationalist camp. Meanwhile more bad news for Jewish Home who finishes another poll flirting with the threshold.

If elections were held today who would you vote for?

Hadash passes Meretz, while Kadima and Independence pick up gains. Am Shalem is also picking up steam. The right block gains ground this week with the help of Shas and Am Shalem’s gains.

Weekly poll average: Likud-Beitenu at 38 seats; Labor at 22; the Right wing parties a little over 66 seats and the left has just under 54. The Jewish Home-National Union list rose to 9 seats while Kadima continues its decline into oblivion.
