A new poll released last evening (Sunday) on Channel 14 shows Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's Likud party becoming the largest party in the Knesset, albeit by a small margin.

According to the poll, conducted by Direct Polls, Likud would get 24 seats if elections were to be held today, while Benny Gantz's State Camp would get 22.

Yesh Atid - 13 seats, Shas - 10 seats, Otzmah Yehudit - 10 seats, UTJ - 8 seats, Yisrael Beiteinu - 8 seats, Religious Zionism - 6 seats, Ra'am - 6 seats, Labor - 5 seats, Meretz - 4 seats, Hadash-Ta'al - 4 seats. Gideon Sa'ar and Balad do not pass the electoral threshold.

The pro-Netanyahu bloc would thus get 58 seats and the anti-Netanyahu bloc - 52. The Arab parties would hold the balance with 10 seats.
