A poll published on Sunday evening by N12 found that if the elections were held today, Lapid would receive 21 mandates, four more than he received in the latest election. A poll published on the same night by Channel 13 found him doing even better, receiving 22 mandates.
The N12 poll also saw Gantz’ Blue and White party rising to 10 seats, 2 more than in the previous election, with the Channel 13 poll finding him rising to 11 seats.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party doesn’t seem to have received a boost since the election, with the N12 poll showing the Likud remaining at 30 seats and Channel 13 showing them losing a seat with 29.

Ayman Odeh’s Joint List grew to 8 seats in the Channel 13 poll but remained at 6 seats in the N12 poll, while Mansour Abbas’ Ra’am Party received 4 mandates in the N12 poll and failed to clear the threshold in the Channel 13 poll.
Both polls found that Netanyahu would have a harder time forming a government if elections were held today.

N12 found the pro-Netayahu bloc receiving 53 mandates, the anti-Netanyahu parties receiving 58 seats, while Yamina’s 5 seats and Ra’am’s 4 seats up for grabs,
When asked who they would vote for if Israel were to move to a system of direct votes for Prime Minister, N12 found Netanyahu receiving 40% of the votes, Lapid close behind with 35%, and the other 25% said they either don’t know, or don’t plan on voting.
