There haven't been too many political polls taken in recent weeks, as Israel has been preoccupied with stories which are less party-politics-related (the Presidential elections, the drama of the murdered youths, and the escalating tension with Hamas). That being said, the latest few polls point to a rise in support for the Israeli right (which has soared to 51 mandates in the most recent poll), and it will be interesting to see how much of that has to do with the immediate reaction to the recent events in Gaza and to what extent it will last in the long run. The latest three polls were also taken after the major political announcement made by Avigdor Liberman, who has decided to split his partnership from Netanyahu's Likud party.
Meanwhile, Yesh Atid, Yair Lapid’s party, doesn’t seem to be doing too well. Meretz on the left still looks (almost) better than ever. The Labor Party, with a new leader, isn’t showing any signs of getting back to being a true powerhouse.
Here are the latest numbers-
Coalition- Likud Beitenu (Likud+Yisrael Beitenu), Jewish Home, Yesh Atid, Hatnua (68 Mandates in the current Knesset; 72 in the polls)
Opposition- Labor, Shas, Meretz, Yahadut HaTorah, Kadima, Hadash, Balad, Raam Taal, Strong Israel (52 Mandates in the current Knesset; 48 in the polls)
