TV Channel 1 poll: Likud 26, Labor 24, Shas 9

TV Channel 1 broadcast a new poll from TNS on this evening’s Mabat news program, showing gains by Likud over Labor, and Shas leaping to nine seats.

With these results, a Right-aligned coalition would number 72 seats, comprising Likud, Habayit Hayehudi, Shas, Yahadut Hatorah, Yisrael Beyteinu and Kulanu.

Mabat’s commentator said it would be very difficult if not impossible for Herzog to put together a Center/Left coalition joined by Shas and Yisrael Beyteinu. Such a government would just reach 60 seats, if it included Labor, Shas, Yesh Atid, Yisrael Beyteinu, Kulanu and Meretz.
