New Walla Poll: Blue & White Continues to Plummet as Likud Rises


The latest Walla News election poll, released on Tuesday, March 19, 2019, shows if the election for 21st Knesset was held today, Likud would emerge the largest party with 32 seats.

Following is the results of the poll.
Likud 32
Blue and White 29
Hadash/Ta’al 9
Labor 8
United Right-Wing 7
New Right 6
Yahadut Hatorah 6
Meretz 6
Yisrael Beitenu 5
Shas 4
Kulanu 4
Zehut 4

The poll was taken by Panel Politics headed by Menachem Lazar together with Walla, involving 998 participants representing a cross-section of the Israeli and Arab voting public. The margin of error is +/- 3.4%.

Lazar points out that this marks the first time Blue and White drops below 30 since being established, and this is most significant, with Election Day being April 9, 2019.

This leaves the right-wing bloc with 68 [ including Feiglin and his Zehut party] and the left-wing bloc with only 52. Even if Feiglin does not recommend Netanyahu for the presidential mandate, Netanyahu maintains the majority, nonetheless.
