Poll: Jewish Home 14, Ha’am Itanu 5

A poll published Sunday by Nana 10 and TRI Strategic Studies indicated that if elections were held today, the Labor-Livni list would receive 25 MKs, and Likud 23.

In third place with 14 is the Jewish Home under Naftali Bennett, which may be recovering partly from the slump it has suffered since Bennett's failed attempt to appoint former soccer star Eli Ohana to the list. It had been polling at 15-16 MKs and dropped to about 12. Another factor in the slump may have been a video in which candidates for the party's primaries opined against gay marriage. 

Yesh Atid would receive 11 seats, and Kulanu under Moshe Kahlon 8, according to the poll. United Torah Judaism would receive seven seats and ultra-leftist Meretz six.

Ha'am Itanu – Yahad, which can be classified as hareidi-Zionist ("hardali") and Shas receive five MKs each.

Yisrael Beytenu is close to slipping under the minimum threshold, with four MKs.

The poll indicates that about 20% of registered voters have not decided yet whom they will vote for. About half of them said they would only decide shortly before the March 17 elections.
