Latest polls: Gantz lags behind, Netanyahu continues to climb

A new survey shows that Benny Gantz's State Camp, which had already reached more than 40 seats continues to plunge, losing about 20 seats in the last month alone.

According to a Direct Polls survey published on Channel 14, it was determined that if elections were to be held today, Knesset seats would be distributed in the following manner: Likud - 26 seats, State Camp - 22, Yesh Atid - 11, Yisrael Beytenu - 11, Shas - 10, Otzma Yehudit - 9, United Torah Judaism - 8, Ra'am - 6, Religious Zionism Party - 5, Labour - 4, Meretz - 4 and Hadash Ta'al with 4 seats.

According to the division into blocs: coalition parties - 58; Opposition - 52 seats, with the undecided Arab parties getting the deciding 10 seats.

In addition, the poll asked whether survey-takers believed Israel should attack Iran in response to the hundreds of UAVs and missiles launched at the Jewish State even without American consent. The results were surprising, with just 54% of respondents answering in the affirmative, 42% saying "No" and 4% claiming that they have no position on the issue.
