Polls conducted since Saar’s announcement that he would run in the election have given him handsome numbers, which have only risen since Shasha Bitton joined. A poll conducted yesterday shows that Saar’s party, together with Shasha Bitton, is becoming the second largest in Israel – by a narrowing margin from the Likud.
If the elections had taken place today, and Saar’s party would also include MK Yifat Shasha Bitton (the poll was conducted before the announcement of its official joining) and the other parties would remain unchanged, the Likud would have won 27 seats and the party led by Saar with Yifat Shasha Bitton would have won With 21 seats and becomes the second largest party in Israel. More according to this scenario: Yesh Atid-Telam, led by Yair Lapid, receives 14 seats, and Naftali Bennett’s right shrinks to only 13 seats.
