Poll 3 Weeks Ahead of Elections for 22nd Knesset Shows Deadlock


Elections for 22nd election are scheduled for Tuesday, September 17, 2019. This poll was released three weeks prior to Election Day, showing that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Blue & White party Chairman Benny Gantz lack the ability to form a minimum coalition government of 61 members without the inclusion of Avigdor Lieberman and his Yisrael Beiteinu party. The poll also shows Otzma Yehudit remains close to three seats, one short of entering into Knesset, while the Zehut party clearly does not stand a chance.

The KAN11 News poll was released on Monday evening, conducted by the Cantor Institute; showing if elections were held today, Likud would remain the largest party, albeit by one seat, followed by Blue & White.

Likud 31
Blue & White 30
Joint Arab List 11
Yisrael Beitenu 9
Yahadut Hatorah 7
Shas 7
Labor/Gesher 7
Democratic Israel 6

• Otzma Yehudit earns 2.3% and does not enter Knesset
• Zehut earns 1.7% and does not enter Knesset

Right-wing/chareidi 56
Left-wing/centrist 55
The key to forming a coalition remains in the hands of Yisrael Beitenu.

  1. Many say, the turnout will be key.
    This election will not have the regular turnout as many have already voted a couple of months ago and won’t show up again…
