We don’t want to make too much of it at these early stages of Israel’s political cycle, but if you take a look at our updated Israel Poll Trends tracker, you’ll be able to see that the Israeli left – namely Labor and Meretz (especially Meretz) – is gaining in the polls.
For these parties to gain, someone has to get weaker, and it seems to be centrist Yair Lapid and his Yesh Atid Party. All in all, the right bloc and the center bloc – the current coalition – have been losing votes in recent polls and have declined from a combined 70 mandates to sixty-something. In one poll they got as low as a combined 61, in other polls they reached a combined 67.
For much more on all this, and for the full numbers, visit our Israel Poll Trends tracker.
